On Wednesday, September 7, Heart Technologies joined Illinois Women in Leadership (IWIL) for the Women’s Symposium. The Women’s Symposium welcomed women to Wyndham Hotel in Springfield. IWIL celebrated its fifth year of commending local women in business and leadership roles.

IWIL Women’s Symposium

The symposium consisted of a day full of speakers and motivators for the audience. Their messages spanned a wide variety of topics: health and wellness, budget and finances, professional development and retirement, and more. What an empowering event to attend!

Heart’s Involvement

Heart Technologies was also able to participate in this event. In between speakers, guests walked around to stretch their legs. This served as the perfect opportunity for guests to seek out more information about Heart Technologies and other vendors. Heart set up shop at a table in one of the conference rooms. Rachel Dasenbrock, Sheila Feipel, and Christine Bare-Kemper happily greeted guests while sharing the offerings Heart provides.

Heart included a featured advertisement in the booklet. We took this opportunity to share our positive feelings towards women in business, technology, and leadership. We also showcased our own Sheila Feipel. A few months ago, Sheila became IWIL’s Athena Award recipient for 2016. Heart shows immense pride in the positive influence Sheila possesses in the Springfield community and in our own company.
