Hundreds attend conference on women in business

Summit was founded by Kisha Zullo of Easthampton more than a decade ago

WINDSOR, Conn. (WWLP) – Hundreds of women from across New England gathered in Windsor, Connecticut on Friday for the 12th Annual Women in Business Summit. The event addressed topics that impact women in the workplace, like personal development, career advancement and money management.

The summit was founded by Kisha Zullo of Easthampton more than a decade ago. She told 22News that it’s important to bring women together to talk about the issues that impact their daily professional lives.

“It is not only the empowerment and the encouragement that we’re giving to women, but the charities that we support and hearing women come back year after year telling me about what the conference has done for them,” said Zullo.

Some of the proceeds from Friday’s summit will benefit the Junior Achievement of Southwest New England.
