UNLEASHING THE POWER OF WOMEN: To Create Our Seat at The Table


The “Unleashing The Power of Women” Retreat is a gathering of women interested in elevating their careers or businesses to the next level. Thought leaders share with attendees their secrets to success on the corporate and entrepreneurial journey. The attendees will receive mentoring, executive training, individual coaching and networking to help equip them on their journey to executive leadership in Corporate America or in their own businesses. The Retreat will offer two tracks: Corporate and Startup Business. It is open to women that are serious about taking their career or business to the next level. Emerging leaders will have the opportunity to network with Mentors and Power Brokers that are committed to helping enable women to succeed in leadership. The tenured professional will also have the opportunity to refresh and open up to new possibilities. There will be a Real Talk session on women leaders trying to do it all...marriage, children, CEO, etc. Is it possible? If so, how is it done with grace, style and excellence? Be ready for authentic conversations about how to succeed in the face of a myriad obstacles! Participants will spend three days with leaders that are game changers in their own rite.
