Black Hills Energy hosts inaugural ASPIRING Women’s Conference

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Black Hills Energy wrapped up it’s inaugural “ASPIRING Women’s Conference” on Wednesday in Rapid City. The two-day conference featured a variety of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and networking activities.

U.S. Rep. and Republican candidate for governor, Kristi Noem, was one of the keynote speakers at the conference.

“There’s a need for a woman’s perspective on every single issue,” she said. “We have a completely different way of looking at things. So don’t ever let anyone pigeonhole you into one area or another. Remember that your perspective is important in every single conversation. You have the ability to impact someone every single day.”

Approximately 130 women from the Black Hills who attended the conference were all nominated to participate by their leadership. ASPIRE is a Black Hills Energy strategic initiative with the goal of identifying, recruiting and developing high-potential women.
