The Soirée Women’s Leadership Symposium just announced it will return this spring with Randi Zuckerberg as a virtual keynote speaker on Thursday, April 29.

The half-day event provides professional development for women in the workplace through sessions led by industry experts, entrepreneurs, C-suite executives and more. After postponing and eventually going virtual last year, the 2021 symposium will give attendees the choice between an in-person event at the DoubleTree Hotel and Robinson Center in downtown Little Rock or a fully interactive virtual option.

Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook Live, a platform used by more than a billion people around the world, is an entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author and Emmy-nominated tech personality. She is the founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, with the mission of supporting current and future entrepreneurs through investment, mentorship and media.

“In addition to Randi’s enormous success in the tech industry, her dedication to championing the ideas and leadership of women makes her such an exciting keynote speaker for the symposium,” says Mandy Richardson, symposium founder and publisher of Little Rock Soirée magazine. “Randi’s journey in a male-dominated industry and her fresh perspective on a woman’s ability to 'have it all' will inspire attendees to keep leading and pushing forward.

“The ability to feature a leader like Randi for the third annual symposium is a testament to the aspirations in our community and the importance central Arkansas is placing on empowering and advancing women.”

A Harvard graduate, Zuckerberg hosts the weekly business talk radio show "Randi Zuckerberg Means Business" on SiriusXM and is the author of four books: two best-selling business books, "Dot Complicated" and "Pick Three," and two children’s books, "Dot" (currently also an award-winning preschool television series on Universal Kids and Hulu) and "Missy President."

Registration for the 2021 symposium is open now, and discounted early bird pricing is available through Feb. 10. Click here to reserve your spot.
