The Women in Leadership Committee works to give the professional women of the Brookings community an organization that was uniquely their own – a place to network, learn and share.
A special thank you to our Season Sponsors for 2023: First Bank & Trust (Gold); Central Bank (Silver); Legacy Financial, The UPS Store, First Interstate Bank, Dacotah Bank Center (Bronze), VRS (Pearl)
The Women in Leadership opportunity is an outlet to empower professional women to share, educate, and influence through networking to build the business community.
