The Center for Women & Enterprise Bringing Together Women Entrepreneurs and
Business Leaders from All Over New England for Virtual Two-day Conference
The Center for Women & Enterprise (CWE) is hosting its
annual Women Business Leaders Conference featuring the Women of Color
Business Summit on October 13 and 14, 2021. The conference will be brought to
participants virtually, allowing women business leaders, owners,
entrepreneurs, community leaders, supplier diversity teams, and purchasing
professionals to join in from all over New England and beyond.
Headlined by keynote speakers Erin Baumgartner, CEO and Co-Founder of Family
Dinner; and Janice Bryant Howroyd, Founder and CEO of ActOne Group, the
conference offers workshops, round tables, and panel discussions led by
experts in a variety of fields. Topics center around business building and
scaling, financial literacy, personal journey, marketing, self-care, growth,
Of note this year is the Women of Color Business Summit, which takes place on
day two (October 14) of the Women Business Leaders conference and was
established to focus on the development, success, and highlights of women of
color entrepreneurs and business leaders, who have been most impacted by the
economic fallout and “she-cession” wrought by COVID-19. The summit
provides a space and opportunity to address the unique challenges, concerns,
and issues facing one of today’s fastest-growing--yet least
supported--groups of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
The ultimate goal of the Women Business Leaders Conference featuring the
Women of Color Business Summit is to leave attendees with expanded networks
and practical tools to help them succeed in their business endeavors and
strengthen their communities.
