Leading Multicultural Business Women Across the Country Gather in Maryland on March 6 

to Share Strategies for Success and Tackle Challenges That Plague Today’s Woman


Women Elevating Women Conference Marks One-Year Anniversary


HYATTSVILLE, MD – Recognizing the challenges women often face to own and operate their own business and level the playing field, business strategist Betty J. Hines will mark the one-year launch of the Women Elevating Women (W.E.W.) conference with female business executives and entrepreneurs from around the country who will gather to share their stories and strategies for success and economic empowerment. The event will pre-launch International Women’s Day – a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – and include sessions that highlight business cultures, unconscious biases, gender equality, the need for diversity and personal growth tools that enable professional business women to survive and thrive drawing on W.E.W.’s five Pillars of Success: Cultivate, Communicate, Collaborate, Courage and Connect.

The conference will spotlight Crystal Khalil, the highest-ranking female executive at Porche Cars North America, and feature a distinguished lunch panel of highly successful men who will discuss how they elevate women and why inclusion matters.

From her in-depth experience as both a corporate executive and women business owner, Hines has firsthand knowledge of the challenges multicultural professional women face – trying to survive and thrive in a fast-paced and constantly changing business environment. She launched W.E.W. in March of 2018 to help tackle these challenges in the workplace by creating a platform that engages these women in an active dialogue on how to develop successful tactics and strategies to scale and grow their businesses.
