Executive Women of Color Summit Sponsorship

In light of the dual pandemics experienced over the past two years, there has been a rude awakening to the impact systemic racism has had on our country, our communities, our people.  These are indeed unprecedented times, times that present opportunity to take what has been learned from these past experiences and change how the world defines equity, diversity and inclusion.

Our theme this year is ‘Claiming Our Truth’.  We use “Sankofa” a metaphorical symbol of a bird with its head turned backward taking an egg from its back, which expresses the importance of reaching back to knowledge gained in the past and bringing it into the present in order to make positive change.  Our ability to acknowledge and claim our truth opens up a promising path to truth and healing.

The Executive Women of Color Summit (EWOC) is the ideal environment to begin that ‘healing’ process.  We are planning a powerful and enlightening two-day retreat ‘to go back and claim our truth’.  Through this past dilemma, what has been lost, forgotten, or stripped away will be reclaimed, revived and perpetuated.  

Thank you for your interest in sponsorship for the EWOC Summit.  We look forward to hosting you and your organization to a one of a kind experience.

The EWOC summit is designed to amplify executive women of color leadership and advocate for increased representation at the Board of Directors level across all spectrums of the healthcare industry and corporate America.
