Update on the 2nd Annual Women Who Build Summit
Wednesday, March 1, 2017
Over 200 women and men joined us last Wednesday for this sold out event. Participants in this year's Summit learned strategies and skills for developing and leveraging professional resources, including negotiating skills and financial acumen. Attendees also enjoyed presentations from keynote speakers Paulette Brown, Immediate Past President of the American Bar Association, and Rashda Rana, International Barrister and Arbitrator, both groundbreaking and inspiring women.
The positive response since the event has been overwhelming. Here's what our attendees had to say:
"...this was hands down the most organized and informative conference I have ever attended. The experience and caliber of the panelists and speakers was top notch. ...having the opportunity to hear from women who serve in a wide variety of capacities and functions was very interesting. Knowing that I can reach out to these women with questions is an invaluable resource." -- Laura Yellick
"High energy, informative, empowering, especially for younger women. It broadened the world and showed what is possible for and available to women in business." -- Marie Maia
"It was a fantastic program. I felt inspired and motivated to speak up and be the solution in my workplace." -- Victoria Pancoast
We would like to thank our many sponsors, our presenters, and participants and look forward to offering our 3rd Annual Summit!
