Join us for the 9th Annual
Women Who Mean Business Summit
 

The Women Who Mean Business Summit is a one-day conference that brings together women professionals for a day of workshops, networking, advice, and opportunity. The Summit focuses on leadership and innovative thinking. Each session is anchored by thought-provoking, high-profile speakers that engage the audience in each topic. During the Summit, there are numerous opportunities for networking, and considering this is one of the largest gatherings of professional women in Virginia, the networking can mean new business opportunities.

The Future is Female

At historic rates, women are leading movements, inspiring future change agents and redesigning how we think about business and innovation. Women are creating business ecosystems that are more socially and culturally competent, inclusive and collaborative. How are women changing narratives, advocating for equity and innovating to disrupt antiquated business processes and ideals? The 2019 Women Who Mean Business Summit will bring together bold leaders who will answer these questions to inspire and educate women leaders.
