We Learned, We Shared, We Laughed, We All Became Better & More Authentic Leaders

Last night we hosted our second 1st Wednesday’s event. More than 20 women joined us for a combination seminar and round-table discussion titled Ideal Woman: A Pathway to Authenticity & Excellence.  Our speaker for the seminar was Chloé Taylor Brown, her bio states that Chloé Taylor Brown’s name is synonymous with “inspiration” and “empowerment” and she definitely lived up to this description. Chloe told us her story, the things she has overcome and walked us through how she helps women to create their “whole-life Personal Excellence Pathway (PEP). The presentation was followed by a lively group discussion. Everyone was able to share their struggles and their successes in living their lives authentically and being a successful leader. Mix in some power networking and you know that we had one hell of an event. Next month our theme is “Women Giving Back” and where we will host a networking social on Wednesday 7/2 at 6:30 p.m. to benefit the Love Beyond Walls #ClosetStrike initiative.
