One of the most important tools in the world of business is the power of empowerment. Being empowered to take control, change and mold your life is one of the most important aspects for greater success. That is why on June 27, 2018 from 8am – 3pm, the Law Firm of Sandberg Phoenix & Von Gontard, P.C. and four Metro East Chambers will be holding their inaugural EmpowHER Women’s Conference at the Gateway Center in Collinsville. With the goals of EmpowHERing her for success, this conference will provide women in business with the tools, information, and support to expand their careers.

Throughout the day multiple speakers will share their stories of success beginning at 9:45 a.m with Donna Moody. Donna will expand on the necessity of Diversity & Sensitivity Awareness while also dispelling the notion that “diversity” is a synonym for “racial or ethnic” issues.

The final speaker of the day will be @ 2:15 p.m by Sgt. Mark Krug, Collinsville Police Department. During the speech, Mark will speak about the importance of cybersecurity, while also discussing how our online interactions affect our safety.
