That’s the theme of Alabama State University’s Women in Business Conference 2013, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in ASU’s Dunn-Oliver Acadome Banquet Room. The event is hosted by the university’s Small Business Development Center.

Keynote speakers at the conference will be Miranda Bouldin, president and CEO of LogiCore Inc., and LeNa Powe, manager of Minority Business and Small Business Development for the Birmingham Business Alliance. Powe also is a former Miss Black Alabama.

Organizers are encouraging women of all generations and backgrounds to attend the conference, which will both celebrate womanhood and provide guidance to women on the keys to success, offered by top business professionals.
