“In addition to celebrating the success and potential of local women, this event is also about imagining what the world would look like if we all committed to passing our torch to others,” added Hallberg. “By empowering women, we are acting as a catalyst to brighten the future for everyone.”

We are creating a community of women and men committed to supporting women throughout their career lifecycles, from college students to emerging leaders to top executives.  This community comes together to provide mentoring, networking and professional development to help women reach their full potential.
