Virtual Inner Circle Series 2020
Wednesday, May 6
7:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Inforum's Inner Circle each year celebrates some of Michigan's most accomplished and admired women - those in the "inner circle" of business, civic, and community life - and gives them an opportunity to share practical know-how and inspire leadership in others. This year our honorees are participating in a virtual Inner Circle, where three honorees are grouped together for one of seven virtual events. These will allow for engaged dialogue between the honorees and participants.
