An international organization aimed to help empower women in the workplace held a conference today in Larchwood, Iowa.

The Sioux Falls Women in Leadership Symposium was held at the Grand Falls Casino Wednesday morning.

The event's theme was "Secure Your Place at the Table," encouraging women to pursue leadership positions in their chosen fields.

KDLT General Manager, Katie Haffeman, was one of the five female executives selected to speak at the event.

Haffeman focused on the importance of meeting new opportunities for advancement in the workplace with preparation.

Organizers hope this becomes an annual event.
