DALLAS (PRWEB) October 30, 2017
On Tuesday, November 7th, the three women that hold Dallas’ top law enforcement positions will speak at the Women’s Business Council – Southwest’s annual Harvesting Partnerships Educational Symposium. The keynote panel will feature newly appointed Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall, Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez, and Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson.
This is the first time for a major city in the United States that all three top law enforcement positions are held by minority women. This keynote panel will discuss their journey to success, overcoming barriers, and how they are impacting the community.
“We are so honored to have these outstanding women speak at Harvesting Partnerships,” said Debbie Hurst, President of the Women’s Business Council – Southwest. “Their career challenges and successes parallel what many of our members face in the business world and I am excited to learn from them on November 7th.”
The event, open to the public, will kick-off with a seated luncheon including the keynote panel and the Lillie Knox Investing for Growth Grant presentation awarded to preselected WBCS members. After lunch, attendees can participate in educational workshops with topics on growing your business, personal development, and prioritizing employee development.
