2022 Race for Success Women’s Conference
We are excited to announce the Madisonville-Hopkins County Economic Development Corporation’s sixth annual women’s conference! The 2022 “Race for Success” Women’s Conference will be held at Mahr Park Event Center Barn A in Madisonville, KY. Each year we look forward to this event as we showcase and celebrate women in business. The Madisonville Hopkins County area currently has over 150 women owned businesses!
This conference aims to collaborate, share ideas and show significance of women in business.
On April 28th, 2022 the Kentucky Derby themed luncheon will feature a keynote address from Louisville native Jesika Young, CEO and President of Cimtech, Inc., and co-founder of New Vibes Wine Co.
Jesika has garnered recognition as a 20 under 40 honoree by News and Tribune and as a 40 under 40 honoree by Louisville Business First and in 2018 was named Enterprising Woman to Watch. She was also honored as Distinguished Alumna of the year by Hanover College and Young Alumna of the year by Presentation Academy. She also served as President of the board of NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
As a mother, business owner, wife, and young professional Jesika continues to break gender barriers by heading a company in a male-dominated industry and by serving on the Metro Manufacturing Alliance to provide a much needed female perspective. She believes strongly in collaboration and celebration by performing those consistently and loves being part of the team. Outside of work Jesika enjoys spending time with her husband and partner, Jerod and their two girls, Claire Marie and Cameron Pearl.
