WE'RE EMPOWERING WOMEN
with our annual #WhatWomenBring event
In May 2018, hundreds of women (and men!) from across the Charleston region came together to celebrate women’s leadership in business, community, and culture.
Honorary chair Joan Robinson-Berry, vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina, kicked off the inaugural event. WCBD News 2 TV anchor & event emcee Octavia Mitchell led an active conversation between an engaged audience and a panel of women leaders who have been changing the face of women in business across 10 different industries, each one candidly addressing real issues women commonly confront in the career world. Positive energy filled the Charleston Area Convention Center ballroom and spilled out into the hallways. (Scroll down to see the event photos... or click here to see the #WWB photo booth pics!)
We hope you'll join us on May 21, 2019 for an equally powerful #WhatWomenBring event!
We're also accepting nominations for the 2019 honorees. Click here to nominate someone outstanding!
