Attendees will learn from top women in various industries throughout the business community, as well as network with like-minded small business owners. Learn more about the event here.
Ms. McConnell will be presenting a “Best for Her” segment, focused on choice-of-entity and entity formations. She will walk attendees through the different business structure options, including how to obtain a Benefit Corporation, or “B Corp”, certification, and how to know which option fits you, and your fledgling company, best. With a background in economics, including an L.L.M. in Taxation, she is well-equipped to speak on such matters, and as a member of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) Lehigh Valley, Ms. McConnell is no stranger to organizations with the goal of supporting professional women at all stages of their careers.
Registration is required to attend the event, and can be done online.
