A POWER POWWOW FOR THE MS.ES

Women business owners will converge on Evanston, Ill., for their mother-of-all-summits May 29-30 at J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management. The event is being organized by the National Women's Business Council, a federal advisory panel, which invited 1,000 entrepreneurs, academics, and elected officials. The goal: to endorse five areas for research and lobbying from financing issues to preparing teen girls for entrepreneurship. Organizers say the powwow signals female business owners--now at 8 million--have reached critical mass.EDITED BY I. JEANNE DUGAN
