"There were people from massive companies who, I could tell, are very high up in their roles, to women that are wives and on start-up number three. Coming from the events world, I know we always hope for a great turn out, but it's always surprising when it's that good."

Elizabeth Freise
Senior Manager of Brand Strategy, POPSUGAR


"Women, a lot of times, we feel like we are frauds. I feel like it pretty much every day when someone asks my opinion on something, but when you’re in a room like [this] and there are other women who feel the same way you do, have similar stories, and can learn from each other – that’s how we change."

Tracy Gray
Founder, 22 Capital Group & We Are Enough
