Wheeler to Speak on Women in Advocacy Panel


State Representative Barbara Wheeler has been invited to speak on a panel at the Professional Women in Advocacy (PWIA) Conference in Chicago on Thursday, August 23rd.

The PWIA Conference was founded in 2013 to reach women at all levels of their profession across various industries with the goal of giving women advocates the tools and information they need to competently and confidently represent their organization or cause. This year’s theme is “Women Count” to highlight the impact women have in the civic arena. The Chicago workshop will cover communications for advocacy, lobbying compliance and political engagement. The all-day conference will take place at University Center at 525 South State Street in Chicago.

Rep. Wheeler will sit on a bipartisan panel titled “Been There Done That- Women of Distinction”. Every year this particular panel gathers successful women from business, media, and politics to share their stories, lend advice, and inspire others. It is expected to be moderated by FOX 32 anchor, Sylvia Perez. 

Tickets can be purchased and more information on the conference can be found here.
