The event, which is sponsored by the Iowa Gaming Association (IGA), is designed to support the rising numbers of women in leadership roles in the gaming industry. It is the 4th year of the event.

Powers will speak to the estimated 180 attendees about the power of emotional intelligence, specifically the tools you need to handle difficult situations and conversations. Conference attendees will also receive a copy of Power's best-selling book, "Success University For Women in Business," a collection of narratives from successful women around the world.
