Women – and our supporters – have a lot to be proud of. In the past decade alone, women have made major strides in legislature, corporate America, academia and more. We cannot let these accomplishments go unnoticed. Our dynamic programming, impressive lineup of speakers and uplifting atmosphere will leave you asking, “what glass ceiling?”


Women have been breaking barriers and making their own rules for quite some time now. From boardrooms to classrooms across the globe and in all industries you can think of, women have (and will continue) to make a name for themselves. Attendees learn strategies and acquire the necessary tools to advance in their personal and professional lives.


Learning who we are, what we want and what we are capable of is a lifelong process. Sharing insights with one another can make that process easier. Talking about our wins and lessons learned teaches us all about how to navigate challenges. It also lets us know what tokens of wisdom to pass down to the next generation of women. Attendees appreciate the act of sharing and what it does for women empowerment.


Community is the perfect catalyst for social change because there is power in numbers. Fortunately, being a champion for women comes with a tribe of supporters. At the Women for Women Summit presented by the College of Charleston School of Business, you can take the time to make meaningful connections that ignite and foster your personal and professional growth.
