BE A GIRL CONNECTED

Through our various events and special projects we welcome connections by way of conversation, shared opportunities, collaboration potential, and resources within the industry at large. These events provide aspirational women with advice & guidance on how to overcome challenges and where to direct their attention when it comes to achieving their dreams and attaining success. Selected guest speakers and event contributors engage with our audience by sharing their insights on how to build influence, exert power and create a positive culture.
