ARLINGTON, Va. — The Arlington County Commission on the Status of Women, in partnership with the Ballston BID, Living Vicky, and the Arlington Chapter of NOW, hosts its third annual Women in Business Conference: Women in Non-Traditional Fields. The conference will highlight women excelling in under-represented fields — those industries where women represent less than 25% of the workforce and where abundant opportunities exist.
The conference will feature a panel of leading women from business, defense, finance, and law enforcement and will be moderated by veteran television news anchor, Maureen Bunyan. Panelists will share their challenges, triumphs, and insights that will inspire you to explore a career path less traveled.
The event will be held on October 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Center of the NRECA Building, 4301 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA. The Commission is requesting donations of $20 pre-purchase, or $25 at the door, to support its ongoing efforts in supporting initiatives for women in the county and throughout the region.

The Commission was first established in 1974 as an advisory committee to the County Board and consists of volunteer members appointed by the Arlington County Board for three-year terms. The Commission works to advance initiatives and policies that empower women and serves as a community advocate and resource on the social and economic interests of all Arlington women.
The Commission focuses on the following issues: violence against women (sexual and domestic violence and street harassment), women's health and access to health care, Awareness and prevention of gender discrimination, economic opportunities for women, housing and transportation, care-giving (place-based living, and childcare), and education.
