ND Leading Ladies Luncheons
In Celebration of Women's History Month
Center for Technology & Business holds two Leading Ladies Luncheons annually to Celebrate Women’s History Month featuring women panelists representing a variety of historic roles in the state. The luncheons honor women who have made an impact on the history of North Dakota and are held in Fargo and Bismarck in March.
The intent of the luncheons is to create a very intimate experience with audience participation and open discussion among the panelists about their experiences as women leaders of varying backgrounds. “We have women representing education, private sector, non profit, tribal, political and military leadership roles. This is truly a unique experience to celebrate the accomplishments of women from all walks of life in North Dakota. Our hope is to inspire other women to believe that they too can make a difference in the lives of others.” Explained Center for Technology & Business Executive Director, Deb Eslinger.
