2021 WEC Summit Emerge Forward

Women Empowering Change 2021 Emerge Forward Summit

By: MTM | October 25, 2021

More than 11.6 million firms are owned by women, employing nearly 9 million people, and generating $1.7 trillion in sales as of 2017. Women are emerging into positions of leadership that enable them to achieve new levels of success. 

Women Empowering Change believes that change starts within our inner community- self. From there, we can expand our reach and positively impact change around us. Now more than ever, women have opportunities that are within every niche. 

On September 25, 2021, WEC hosted our annual WEC Summit. This year’s theme was Emerge Forward. We brought men and women together for an impactful event centered around empowering messages of hope and equipping attendees with the tools to move them to the next level. The summit was filled with knowledge, networking opportunities, fun, and games.

 The speakers spoke from passion and experience. There was not a dry eye in the room! Lives were changed on the spot and new goals were set.
