Executive Women of Color Summit 2018 Theme

Resilience is the capacity to recover to your original state despite being stretched, bent or compressed.  As women and particularly, Black women, time and time again we have found the strength to pull through adversity.  The theme for the Executive Women of Color Summit 2018 is: “Resilience: Leveraging Our Journey”.   Celebrating the strength, courage and resiliency of our Sisters.
