HER Speak Up! Virtual Series – Watch the Replay

“Looking Back While Moving Forward” April 8

2020 included a lot of necessary quick pivots-at work, at home, life in general. While the pivots may continue, many are feeling some sense of settling into a “new normal”—the remote work, family dynamics.  While we all hope we see some return to connecting with loved ones, doing our favorite activities around town, when it comes to professional roles, will things ever return to the way they were pre-covid?

Nominate Your Woman of Achievement

Nominations are closed for 2021

HER Women of Achievement is an annual program celebrating Eastern Iowa women for their amazing leadership, drive and dedication.

Each honoree has made sizable contributions in their workplaces, community organizations and in their communities. Through peer or self-nomination, women are able to share stories about unique experiences and the impact others have felt by their unique gifts. These extraordinary women not only inspire and motivate change and action, but serve as role models for future leaders.

Nominations are being reviewed, with an announcement of the 2021 honorees scheduled for June – all leading to an incredible celebration experience.
