Name: Durham Women Take No Bull 2017
Date: March 8, 2017
Time: 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM EST
Event Description:

The story of Durham’s history from railroad and tobacco to research and technology is incomplete without the voice of the many women who have shaped Durham’s past and are continuing to build its future. This event brings together Durham’s women, from every industry and cluster to both inspire and inform each other through panel discussions and a keynote address. 

Durham Women Take No Bull is a partnership between the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce and Casey’s Company, challenging women to answer the question, ‘What’s Wrong with Being Confident?’ Utilizing panel discussions and a keynote address GDCC and Casey’s Company seeks to inspire and motivate women by having real women share their stories through the lens of Durham then and Durham now and the role of women in shaping Durham’s future. This program takes a unique spin on confidence, using it to galvanize Durham’s women to take action and ‘drive it like they stole it!’
