CWE Women Business Leaders Conference & Women of Color Business Summit - Oct 13 & 14

It's Your Time.

Women--especially Black and Latinx women--have been profoundly impacted by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. But amidst this alarming economic "she-cession," we are seizing this moment of national reflection as an opportunity to reexamine our lives and turn toward our dreams of entrepreneurship; whether that be launching a new business or growing an existing one. Rather than seeing this downturn turn as the end, we see it as the beginning. This is our time to grow. It’s YOUR time.

CWE’s Virtual Women Business Leaders Conference featuring the Women of Color Business Summit is the premier event for women in business, bringing together more than 450 women business leaders, owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders, supplier diversity teams, and purchasing professionals.
