Women In Business Summit
The WIB Summit was created in 2005 to encourage, inspire and educate women through the various stages of their careers. Created and produced by Events of Joy, the WIB Summit, provides a risk free environment to tackle career challenges. The atmosphere at the Summit is designed to stir conversation about the career challenges and successes women experience in the workplace.
The summit provides a platform for new recruits, entrepreneurs, and industry veterans to receive training and information in an interactive manner to assist them in achieving their career and personal goals. Attendees have the opportunity to network with other professionals and join in discussions about subjects that are relative to their growth. The summit connects people to their next mentor, friend, client, employee; it reinforces the power and importance of the human connection.
Each year the Women in Business Summit spotlights and supports a charity. This year we’ve selected YWCA Hartford Region. “YWCA Hartford Region is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. YWCA Hartford Region believes that every woman, every girl and every child deserves the opportunity to shine at each stage of life. YWCA serves the greater Hartford area with vital programs, including early learning and school-age childcare; emergency, transitional and permanent supportive housing; youth leadership development; racial justice awareness and financial literacy education. Serving over 2,300 people annually, YWCA is a recognized advocate on issues related to safety for women and their families, economic empowerment, racial justice, youth development and affordable childcare.”
