Event Description:

The Annual UDI Celebrating Women event will be returning for the 8th annual flagship event!
The Celebrating Women event has historically been one of our most popular events where we celebrate strong women in our industry who will speak on their career journey, lessons and advice they have picked up along the way as well as their area of expertise.
The inspiring discussion will revolve around influential professionals in the city, offering a diversity of experiences from career paths and goals to business approaches, as well as about their life's journey and struggles.
This event is open to everyone and we invite all members and non-members to attend the Women of UDI committee's most popular event and toast to an exciting year of celebrating women across all industries.
