- I had the opportunity to meet and network with amazing ladies, listen and learn from the inspiring stories of several strong women, get access to resources and information on several women related issues. I left the conference inspired to do more and ready to collaborate with other amazing women to lead the change we want to see around us.
- I was thrilled with the panel discussions and the Speed Mentoring Session. It was so amazing to be in a room filled with such distinguished women leaders from diverse fields. Women are an epitome of power, strength and a formidable force of nature.
- I found the conference insightful. A good platform to connect with accomplished women who mentors young women to unleash their potentials. Takeaways for me: everyone has a story but we must not allow our past to define us and network with people who can help realize your dreams. .
#EWNConference2019 highlights. Below are some feedback our patrons shared after the conference.
- The conference was super timely at this point in my life as a young entrepreneur. The main inspiration I took from the event is that behind every sunshine smiles I see on people is a pool of imperfections. The successful people I see around all have their fears just like I do. When thoughts of my imperfections are trying to weigh me down I should remember that it's so with every other successful person, thus, I must just focus on achieving my goals.
- Though, I work in the space of empowering college women, the conference was truly significant because, I was really motivated and picked up a few nuggets during the speed mentoring session, which is a realistic reflection and great experience for the next phase of my personal and professional life. I had the opportunity to also build network with other women leaders.
- I realized the journey ahead is never going to be easy. What I need to do is keep working hard towards the change I want to create for myself and others. Failure is another stepping stone to success.
