Registration is $59 for those who sign up on or before Feb. 28. The cost goes up to $85 on or after March 1, according to event Chair Denise Carter.
“The event is geared toward women for professional development, networking and personal development,” Carter said in a telephone interview Wednesday.
Dr. Gina Barreca, author and a professor at UConn, is the keynote speaker for the sixth annual conference, which will also feature two panel discussions.
Topics for discussion will include gender and generations in the workplace, mentoring and coaching, and volunteering in the community, Carter said.

Weinberger, president of Mentor Consulting Group; Dr. Gena Glickman, president of Manchester Community College; Cindy Moore, global human resources manager from General Electric; and Tricia Brunton, president of Xcel.
Olessa Stepanova from WFSB Channel 3 will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
“It’s a wonderful conference,” Carter said. “We’ve improved it further this year and hope to have a sold out audience for the second year in a row.”
