Why a Women’s Business Summit?

A thriving economic community depends on the hardworking people within it. Women face unique challenges on their career path. We understand that working women throughout Northeastern Wisconsin are also looking for— and deserve— opportunities to get to know one another. We strive to empower the women in our community while providing additional enrichment and growth opportunities. As we approach our 2nd annual N.E.W. Women’s Business Summit, we want to share why this is such a powerful event for women in our community.

Creating mutually beneficial relationships with peers

Nothing compares to a face-to-face interaction. Sure, we can build online relationships, but sometimes these feel one-sided and impersonal. At the N.E.W. Women’s Business Summit, you have the opportunity to meet your peers face-to-face and have a genuine conversation to serve as the foundation for a lasting relationship. The summit is your chance to join hundreds of like-minded women who are also looking to create mutually beneficial relationships through:

  • Networking to meet many more like-minded professional contacts
  • Meeting others in your industry
  • Creating relationships that will help you learn about other organizations in our community

Learning from peers about best practices and other essential information

Have you ever learned an important lesson the hard way? It’s OK, because a lot of us do! The women at this year’s event have also made a few mistakes, and they’re happy to share their experiences, so we can all learn from them. The N.E.W. Women’s Business Summit will connect you with the women and experts to help you learn the best practices and other essential information you need to be successful in business. We’re not about recreating the wheel. If there’s a better way to do something, we’re all ears! Come ready with your questions and be prepared to:

  • Increase skills sets in your current— and goal— roles
  • Grow knowledge in areas of expertise that you’ve been wanting to learn more about
  • What tools can help us be most efficient and get back to doing what we love
  • Tried and true best practices across your your personal and professional life

Supporting each other with knowledge, skills, tools—and friendship

Let’s not forget about our personal growth and fulfillment, because even with all the tools and best practices, we cannot do it alone! It takes a village and the N.E.W. Women’s Business Summit helps you to create your community of support. Let’s use our strengths to support each other! Be prepared to:

  • Expand your tribe/circle to meet friends
  • Find a mentor or someone in your industry
  • Share your journey to inspire and mentor others
  • Support your work/life balance and learn to thrive

Becoming exposed to subject matter experts – our speakers, and the practical information and tools they will be sharing

How often can you access a powerhouse of women, across an array of industries, in one day? No matter what your question, we have you covered with our hand-picked, subject matter experts and speakers! Women face unique challenges in business, but we also face these in everyday life. We juggle a lot between our careers, families and taking care of ourselves, which is why we designed our summit to focus on all areas that women face both professionally and personally. Let our experts lead and inspire you to:

  • Learn new skills that will benefit career growth
  • Inspire future growth-based learning by “sampling” tools and skills
  • Become familiar with emerging/technological changes
  • Learn the importance of self care
