Welcome Message from Summit Chairs

 

 

On behalf of the Rise! Women’s Summit planning committee, we invite you to join us for our 2nd Annual Women's Summit!

 

This summit is sure to be a power-packed day of inspiring panels, workshops, and presentations designed to encourage and motivate women to kick off their 2022 with a renewed sense of purpose and direction.

 

If you have heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times - 2020 was a year like no other. In 2021, at our inaugural event we started the year by encouraging women across Nashville to RiseUp! We heard from amazing women empowering us to move forward despite such a challenging 2020. For 2022, we want to continue to empower women to Rise! A recent McKinsey study confirmed that 1 in 4 women have seriously considered taking a step back from their careers in the past 12 months, and 80% of those women have left the workforce since the pandemic. At our 2nd Annual event we are restoring hope, refocusing on self-care and reigniting the power within us all. If you gained anything from the women's Summit we want you to join us again on Saturday, January 29th, 2022...and this time, be sure to bring a friend!

 

We have an amazing line-up of professional women who will interact with us on a variety of topics ranging from women in politics and managing our personal finances to personal and professional development. We’re leaning into our social purpose while anticipating another year of experiencing a fabulous day of thriving. We hope that you will join us! 

 

Registration is now open and we look forward to having you join us!

 

Always remember: Your life is an occasion, Rise up to it!
