On May 9, 2018, hundreds of women and men attended #WhatWomenBring with WCBD News 2 TV anchor Octavia Mitchell and a panel of women leaders who are changing the face of women in business across 10 industries. The positive energy of the audience was incredible!
If you were unable to attend but wanted to, you might be interested in our new #WWB email series. Each month, one of our 2018 honorees shares her perspective about how she succeeded despite the odds stacked against women and/or minorities, how you can succeed despite those odds, or something else close to her heart.
Every #WWB post has been inspirational and thought-provoking. Past editions have included:
