Following the Women Who Create™ Conference, we invite the public to attend the uniquely inspiring SheTalks event: a community cocktail reception featuring six women who are creatively leading in their distinct fields. Taken from the Japanese-inspired Pecha Kucha, each presenter shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds while telling their story. The event will be hosted at the ISU Research Park by the ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship and is sponsored by the ISU Debbie & Jerry Ivy College of Business. This fun and inspiring event is free to attend; however, registration is appreciated and will open late summer 2022.
