Arkansas Business Leaders Share Career Advice at Annual Women in Business Development Luncheon

The UCA College of Business held its annual Women in Business Development Luncheon on Tuesday, March 8. Distinguished business leaders from across the state attended to connect with UCA’s business students. The topic of the day was the “Top 5 Things Women in Business Need to Know.”

Attendees enjoyed lunch while students connected with business leaders to ask their questions. MC Lori Melton led a panel of five women who shared advice they wish someone had told them before they began their careers. Much of the advice the leaders gave was learned the hard way as they journeyed through their careers, but they wanted these students to be set up for success before they begin.

Throughout the event, the panelists and table hosts gave students tips on how to define their own success, master their mindsets, maintain integrity, find a mentor, and know their audience and brand. The event was sponsored by First Community Bank.

The College of Business thanks the business leaders who committed their time to mentor our students and First Community Bank for sponsoring this event!
