Every woman needs a network of strong women in their lives to grow their confidence, courage, and connections.

This is why the 100 Wise Women event series was created. Hosted four times a year, women leaders come together to connect and learn at this meaningful, interactive breakfast event.

Every 100 Wise Women event includes the same essential ingredients:

Open Networking & Breakfast
Keynote Address
Facilitated Discussion
Sharing of Lessons Learned

These events foster deep, meaningful connection that go beyond your typical “networking.” Our keynote speakers are candid, inspirational, and wise beyond measure. If you’re interested in meeting incredible, strong, women looking to make a difference in the lives of the community and other women, you don’t want to miss this event.
