Rethinking and Accelerating Womens Leadership in Business 4

Women’s Business Collaborative (WBC) would like to invite you to our upcoming Rethinking and Accelerating Diversity and Women’s Leadership in Business event which takes place Wednesday, May 11 from 11:00am-2:30 ET. This half-day summit showcases predominant women and men leaders in the WBC movement. The goal of the event is to showcase the trends, transformations, and innovations that ensure women can and will lead in business.

The summit is organized into three tracks: Diverse Corporate Leadership, Driving Corporate Purpose and Helping Women Entrepreneurs Soar. We are expecting an audience of 500+, and gauging from feedback from last year’s summit, the learning, insights, and connections that occurred were phenomenal and catalyzing.

WELCOME with Sharon Reynolds
