Empowering Women in Industry is an online community and an Annual Event focused on the goal of celebrating, educating and empowering women in industry.
Many women learn to navigate a male-dominated industry without female role models. We want to use our network to share experience and expertise, to help women do this more efficiently. Many women leave the industry for various reasons; some are forced to choose between a career and family life, while others have first-hand experience with the ‘glass ceiling’ – consistently facing obstacles as they try to climb the corporate ladder. Without support, growing in your career is hard. We have a long way to go, but we believe Women in leadership will develop and implement the solutions to the many issues that still need to be addressed. Our team wants to empower you to be YOUR BEST SELF! When this happens, you can stay motivated to work toward your dreams and accomplish the goals you set for yourself. We want to work together with you. Help us Empower Women in Industry.

Our mission is to Connect and Educate Women that will Inspire the next generation of leaders. We will discuss opportunities and issues we handle every day as well as learn skills to strengthen our voice as Women in the Industry!
Our vision is to help women advance in their profession and build a future generation of women in leadership. There is not always a seat at the table where women’s ideas can be heard and understood. This lack of understanding is a roadblock for many women who don’t have the communications skills or the interest in having the attention focused on them. We will stand with these ladies and make sure we equip ourselves and them with the tools needed to use our voices to create positive change in our industry.
We plan to build a community that connects women and educates them in many areas so they can be role models for the next generation. One area we are passionate about is STEM. We believe we need to continue to give girls more exposure to this field before they choose a career path. We need to shine a light on women in these fields, on their accomplishments, and their character so we can learn from them.
