ABOUT THE SOCIETY OF WE

The Society of WE offers community, mentorship, and support to women entrepreneurs worldwide.

Our mission is to help you achieve yours.

In 2016, the foundering members—female entrepreneurs themselves—noticed that most of the training and advice for business-building they came across was geared towards men and failed to take into account the unique challenges and strengths of women entrepreneurs.

They decided to change that.

That summer, they brought together a group of twelve female business owners who were frustrated with the lack of support they had, and The Society of Women Entrepreneurs was born. They met in each other’s living rooms twice a month, and within a year, they’d grown to more than 1,500 members.

Today, The Society of WE has thousands of members in multiple cities and is currently expanding to sister chapters nationally and internationally. This ecosystem of women helping, supporting, and mentoring women is attracting new members every day, and The Society of WE is on track to become the most impactful community of women entrepreneurs around the world.

ABOUT YOUR SPEAKER:

Frances Jonon
CEO, Austin Humane Society

Under Jonon’s leadership, Austin Humane Society has grown from servicing 2,500 animals per year to helping 11,000, though, in 2019, it had a record year, serving more than 13,000 animals. It’s the largest no-kill shelter in the city. With 43 employees and more than 750 volunteers, Jonon has her plate full and a job that keeps her busy. She has a close-knit team and a deep knowledge of an industry she’s been a part of for more than 23 years that allows her to grow the organization in a way that best benefits the animals in her care.


ABOUT YOUR HOST:

Ellen Smoak
FOUNDER & CEO, The Society of Women Entrepreneurs

Ellen Smoak is a #1 bestselling author, keynote speaker, and entrepreneur who has been called a “true change agent” by Marci Shimoff, star of the hit movie The Secret. Ellen was the keynote speaker at the 2018 TEDx BartonSpringsWomen in Austin, Texas, where her passionate speech, “Confessions of a Former Mean Girl,” sparked a call to action for women around the world to learn a better, more empowering way of relating to one another. In her speech, Ellen affirms, “If we’re going to keep rising as women, then we absolutely must start treating each other better.”

Ellen’s passion for women supporting women is informed by her experience, during adolescence, of terrible bullying at the hands of other girls. Experience matched with later insights about this and related problems led Ellen to create The Society of WE. Her inspiring message is perfect for any audience that seeks inspiration and motivation for change.

Ellen has successfully built several six- and seven-figure companies during her 15 years of experience as an entrepreneur. She now spends her time mentoring other businesswomen inside The Society of WE toward greater success, abundance, and prosperity.
