Greater Fort Myers Chamber to host Level HER Up Women’s Conference May 1

The Greater Fort Myers Chamber is hosting its second annual Level HER Up Women’s Conference Wednesday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Presented by the Chamber’s Women in Business committee and Lee Health and hosted by the FSW Foundation, the one-day program is built upon growing and nurturing the health, empowerment and renewal of women across Southwest Florida. The event will feature engaging speakers, informative health experts, professional workshops and other opportunities designed to help local women take their careers to the next level.

The Level HER Up conference will feature keynote speaker Melissa Hughes, author and self-proclaimed neuroscience geek. Hughes is the author of “Happy Hour with Einstein,” “Happy Hour with Einstein: Another Round,” and “Happier Hour Gratitude Journal.”

After spending the first half of her professional career in education studying the science of learning, Hughes realized that learning how to think creatively and communicate effectively is even more important in the workplace. Hughes combines her experience in teaching and learning with extensive research in neuroscience, behavioral science and psychology to inspire others to tap into their inner genius.

The event will also have two panels. The “Breaking Barriers” panel, moderated by Nirupa Netram, will feature accomplished individuals who have shattered barriers and paved the way for others. Their goal is to share their stories of resilience and triumph and leave attendees feeling empowered to overcome obstacles and reach new heights. The second is a panel led by healthcare professionals providing valuable insights into women’s health and wellness.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of breakout sessions led by the speakers, with topics ranging from financial planning and career advancement to self-defense and leadership development. The conference will also feature vendors showcasing products and services, food and opportunities for networking.

“There has never been a more critical time to come together and support the growth and empowerment of women,” said Kelly Thawley, Level HER Up chair. “We invite everyone in the community to join us for a day of inspiration, learning and camaraderie at the Level HER Up Conference.”

During the conference, the Chamber will announce the nominees for this year’s APEX Award and reveal the three finalists.

General admission tickets cost $75 and VIP tickets are $100, which include a VIP swag bag and morning yoga. There are also $25 student tickets available for high school and undergraduate college students with the presentation of a student ID.
