Female business leaders share advice, resources on empowering women

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Normally at this time of year, a “who’s who” cast of Alabama political characters would be gathering at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear for the Business Council of Alabama’s annual governmental affairs conference.

But like many things these days, BCA had to scrap the in-person conference this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the group worked to produce a virtual conference. Rebranded as Engage Alabama, it featured panels about leadership, diversity and engagement with speakers ranging from mayors and other elected officials to power company executives and chambers of commerce leaders.
