In celebration of National Women's Month, prominent women in the business community have something to say to their peers on how to "Power Your Potential."

Rochester Institute of Technology's E. Philip Saunders College of Business is sponsoring a business women's leadership conference on March 30 in the Vignelli Center for Design Studies, James E. Booth Hall. The event includes a breakfast and networking session at 7:30 a.m., and concludes with a luncheon from noon to 1 p.m.

Jumpstarting the morning program is a panel discussion with Ellen Brenner, co-owner of Fleet Feet; Nancy Rencis, senior vice president and senior relationship manager in commercial banking at KeyBank; and Christina Gullo, president and CEO of St. Joseph's Villa.

An educational workshop follows with Ann McCorvey, chief financial officer and senior vice president at Eastman Kodak Co., who will discuss "Moving Up the Corporate Ladder," and Mary-Beth Cooper, vice president of student affairs at RIT, on "The Art and Adventure of Leadership in the Workplace."

The keynote speaker is Michelle Berryman, founding principal and CEO of Echo Visualization LLC. The design firm, based in Atlanta, supports the interactive design and user experience for consumer, medical and industrial products, as well as software, websites and Internet applications. The company's clients include Coca-Cola, Electrolux, Nike, Siemens, Philips and Hewlett-Packard.
