On September 28, 1977, an exposition in New York at the Statler-Hilton Hotel that focused on women in business commenced. Believed to be the first of its kind in the United States, the “Women in Business Week” was sponsored by the New York Association of Women Business Owners and was coordinated by Diana Silcox. The five days consisted of lectures, workshops, seminars, and exhibits to help aspiring businesswomen. Booths were set up that featured goods and services for companies of all sizes, giving women and business representatives the chance to network and showcase what they had to offer others.
