About Rise & Lead Women
EMPOWERING WOMEN IN BUSINESS TO TAKE THE LEAD IN THE WORKPLACE AND MARKETPLACE!
Rise & Lead Women is a platform that focuses on connections, educational events and exposure through our Rise and Lead magazine launching in October 2018.
Rise and Lead Women was created to bridge the gender gap and support the financial inclusion and leadership advancement of women in various industries.
The mission of the Rise and Lead summit is to offer demonstrative teachings and mentorships to help entrepreneurial women and professionals to acquire the right skills to grow in their leadership, advance their careers, get visible and make an impact.
Our goal is to provide a platform and create opportunities for networking and collaborations, provide mentorships, leadership development training and showcase the works and voices of visionary leaders.
