Successful 1st Conference

Our 1st successful conference was lead by our founder, Mary Brooks.
“The most common way people give up their power is by believing they don’t have any. Thus was born, the power of us, the power of you,” said founder Mary Brooks, who led the keynote speech. “And our mission is very simple, and that is engaging women in leadership through inspiration, encouragement, and support.”
