Please join us at The Stir 2014! There, you’ll gather with nearly 1,000 professional women (and men, too) to network, share best practices across careers, celebrate women in business, and have FUN!

We take pride in the fact that there is no other event quite like The Stir. The evening is all about CELEBRATION: celebration of professional women across all sectors, celebration of women’s equality and leadership, and celebration of businesses that are moving gender equality forward in the workplace.

The Stir is our one-and-only fundraising event each year. After expenses, all proceeds fund our programmatic work and fuel our statewide grantmaking. When you attend The Stir, not only do you benefit professionally, you become a true partner in our work and a vital force for gender equality!

The event will be held at the centrally located Minneapolis Marriott City Center. Valet parking is available at the hotel, or better yet, park in the attached City Center ramp and leave your coat in the car!

5-6:15 p.m.: Registration & Networking Reception
6:30 p.m.: Dinner & Program
8:30 p.m.: You’re headed for home after a fantastic, worthwhile evening!
