Women in Housing Leadership Awards Banquet

Wednesday, September 25 | 12:30 P.M. – 2:00 P.M.

Now in its eighth year, the Women in Housing Leadership Awards Banquet provides conference attendees with the opportunity to hear inspirational women leaders share success stories from both a personal and professional perspective. Incorporating a theme of “Voices,” the Banquet will pay tribute to the critical but often underappreciated role women continue to play in our industry and how important it is that their voices are heard.


The Five Star Institute and mPower are proud to bring you the 2019 Women in Housing Leadership Awards Banquet. This year’s event will feature a Keynote Presentation from Janine Driver, New York Times bestselling author and Owner & President of the Body Language Institute.

Driver has taught executives, salespeople, and other professionals throughout the country how to build their presence, explode their selling skills, and deliver winning presentations by unlocking their body language potential, building trustworthy relationships, making better decisions, and evolving into their most effective self.

Don’t miss Driver’s inspirational Keynote during this year’s Women in Housing Leadership Awards Banquet.
