Program aims to help women in the workplace

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Is there a way to turn a setback in your career into success?

Close to 200 local women in business explored that question during a seminar sponsored by the Buffalo Niagara Partnership. The program, “Power up: turning setbacks into successes,” was designed to help women overcome obstacles they may encounter in the workplace.

Maureen Hurley, executive vice president at Rich Products, delivered the keynote address highlighting some of her own experiences.

News 4’s Jacquie Walker served as moderator during a lively discussion with the audience and a panel of local business people.
