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.
