The Women in Business Summit (WIB Summit) was founded in 2005 by Kisha Zullo.  It was created to provide a platform outside of the workplace to educate, encourage and inspire women to achieve their career and personal goals.  The energy at the Summit is magnetic! Attendees seamlessly connect to each other and the information to help resolve their career and personal challenges.

The summit provides a platform for a diverse audience of 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. This one day conference connects people to their next mentor, friend, client or employee. 

We focus on these key areas:

  • Leadership & Career Advancement

  • Money Management

  • Personal Development 

  • Entrepreneurship


This year we've selected the Food Pantry in West Hartford, CT. The Town That Cares is a special fund administered by the Town of West Hartford’s Department of Social Services. The fund assists low-income residents experience a crisis situations hindering their ability to pay for groceries, utilities, shelter, medical expenses, clothing and other critical needs. The fund also provides support for several seasonal programs to help ease the financial burden on low-income residents. The Town That Cares is entirely funded by contributions from individuals, schools, community groups, faith communities and businesses.
