Sixth Annual “Connections” Women’s Symposium Scheduled for Nov. 1

OSWEGO, NY– On Tuesday, November 1, SUNY Oswego’s Office of Business and Community Relations (OBCR) and the Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training (WNET) will gather women from across New York State for “Connections,” a day-long conference to be held at The American Foundry, near the SUNY Oswego campus, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“Connections” is designed to bring women of all ages and backgrounds together to explore their place and power within their professions. The theme for this year’s event is “Vision, Change and Growth” and will feature several dynamic speakers, networking opportunities, lunch, a dessert reception and a “Women’s Marketplace”, where vendors promoting products and services for women will be showcased.

“‘Connections’ offers a unique opportunity for women to learn from each other, generate new ideas, and develop their careers and entrepreneurial aspirations,” said Shannon Mantaro, Connections co-chair. “Each year, women from all over Central New York come together to be inspired and energized by dynamic speakers who discuss vision, change and growth and how those concepts have made an impact on their personal and professional lives.”

Sponsors to date include Alliance Bank, WomenTies, Gwen Inc., SUNY Oswego’s Office of Business and Community Relations, and Women’s Network of Entrepreneurial Training (WNET). There are three levels of Sponsorship opportunities available.

Registration and tickets for “Connections” will be available in late August from the Tyler Hall Box Office. Visit Connections’ Facebook page at for updates.
