The keynote speaker is business ethics expert Chuck Gallagher, host of radio’s “Straight Talk” and author of the book “Second Chances,” who will take main stage on May 9. Gallagher’s presentation, “Positive Choices for Business Success – The Ethics of Excellence,” will focus on building relationships and trust through ethics problem solving.

“WIN has always partnered with professionals that help women advance,” said Yolanda Sandor, 2017 conference co-chair. “This year’s speakers follow that precedent, presenting on key industry trends, development and leadership.”
In addition to the professional development that will be presented, attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in the annual WIN Scholarship Walk that benefits the WIN Scholarship Fund. The WIN Gala and Most Influential Women Reception will be held on May 9 to celebrate the three Most Influential Women Award recipients: Cristina Fronzaglia- Murray, PPG, Renee Ricciotti, 3M Automotive Aftermarket, and Elizabeth Stein, Assured Performance Network. Since 1999, the program has recognized 89 women for both their professional accomplishments and for going beyond requirements of their positions to give back to their communities. The event will also celebrate the recipients of the 2017 WIN Scholarship Program (to be named later this month).
