In honor of International Women's Day, the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce will host the 4th Annual Take No Bull Women's Conference. #NoBullCon20 is the premiere women's conference in Durham attracting women from across the Triangle. The event features panel discussions, activations and exhibitors, networking opportunities, lunch, and two keynote addresses to inspire women to take action in every area of their lives. We're back for a fourth year with a new venue and new content, but we're keeping the same energy - and that's no bull!

The conference will feature breakout sessions where you will have the opportunity to attend two out of the six sessions offered. Take a look at the options here:
Crushing Female Stereotypes
Ever been told, “that’s not for girls?” or “That’s a man’s job?" And you proved them wrong? The women on this panel will discuss their journey to unconventional roles and how they are ensuring more women take similar paths.
12-Fix Plan to a Leaner, Healthier, Happier Life
With so much diet and health information thrown your way, it's hard to know what the most time-efficient and effective changes to make to improve your weight and health. Based on the latest scientific research, this session lays out the 12 most important fixes you can make for the biggest impact. Even changing how and when you eat and drink can make a big difference. Find out which trending topics like intermittent fasting, the keto diet, and kombucha are worth adopting.
Make Room for Champions
Women often see the success of other women as their own failure, assuming there is room for only one woman at the top. The reality is more women are ascending to leadership roles than ever before. Instead of seeing other women as competition, leverage those relationships to help other women who aspire to leadership roles.
Men are often not comfortable participating in conversations about diversity because they are unsure of their role or concerned about saying the wrong thing. This panelist of men will explore traits for inclusivity, share language and context to engage in discussions, and help foster a culture that creates better leaders, stronger businesses and more fulfilling careers.
Fire Your Boss
You’ve been told many times over that you have a gift that is worthy of its own business, but you’ve doubted and choose instead, to find “security” in working for someone else. Yet each day, you’re miserable because that “gift” is nagging at you. These women will show you how to turn your passion and skills into a lucrative, sustainable business.
What Happens When Women Lead. And Why it Matters
It’s no secret. Men and women lead differently. How so? Why? And is the outcome different? We will examine case studies from three women with different leadership styles and that has and continues to yield successful outcomes. How do they approach business, how do they select their teams, and what elements are they considering in their succession plan? Hear it in their own words.
We’ll hear from Heather Pownall, who has been learning about and working to advance women and minorities in the workplace for over a decade. Based in Durham, Heather now works as Chief Development Officer at the Association for Women in Science. Heather will show us how to tap into our inner courage so that we can show up as the most powerful version of ourselves as women and leaders.
