What was the Summit about?
The Women’s Right & Empowerment Network (WREN) hosted a sell-out crowd for their third-annual conference, 2019 WREN Summit: The Time Is Now. The event, held Monday, April 1 in conjunction with Equal Pay Day, brought together business and community leaders for discussions on professional and empowerment for women. Bank of America President Kim Wilkerson led a keynote session, and a pay equity conversation with WNBA All-Star A’ja Wilson rounded out the day.
The event, which boasted over 14 sessions, had over 300 registrants. Participants and speakers represented all regions of the state, as well as both public and private sectors. The event also saw a record number of sponsors, representing companies from around the state that support equal workplace opportunities and practices.
