Hundreds of business professionals will converge at this event devoted to women in business. This year's conference theme is "Managing from the Inside Out," featuring workshops and presentations which will bridge internal leadership and external business development challenges. In addition, there will be a special panel discussion exclusively for Supplier Diversity professionals. Business leaders and community leaders will be recognized at the CWE Awards Luncheon for their achievements in promoting and furthering the success of women's business enterprises in New England. The generosity of the following sponsors to-date is making this event possible: Care.com, Stop&Shop, Comcast, RBSCitizens, and John Hancock.
“The challenges that plague women business leaders and entrepreneurs can sometimes force them to focus more on the tactical running of their businesses than on marketing and business development strategy. We’re thrilled to have Alyssa Dver as a session leader for our event – she has the strategic knowledge and insight needed to coach women on how to effectively market their businesses and close deals,” said Susan Rittcher, President and CEO of The Center for Women & Enterprise.
