A Transformational Day

Gearing Up provides participants with resources to thrive professionally and personally, with opportunities for self-reflection, group exploration, and interactive learning. The impact extends beyond the one-day event through goal-setting activities to encourage continued learning and development. Our empowering program fosters strong connections to help attendees develop a network of talented and supportive professionals.

The Gloria Cordes Larson Center for Women and Business aims to create a welcoming space that celebrates the diversity of our community with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ability. We are committed to providing and promoting a bias free environment by addressing issues of equity and inclusion through our conference.
