    GW School of Business: Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership Impact Conference
    This year on March 8th, International Women's Day, the GW Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership Impact Conference will focus on solutions and, specifically those created by women. In a unique and challenging time in our world, this conference is about learning HOW women have persevered and succeeded.

    From student entrepreneurs to multi-million dollar corporations, women are creating innovative solutions with impact. From managing micro-businesses to directing nations, women are proving their ability to create inclusive solutions with impact. As our world changes from the effects of climate change, political unrest, and poverty, women entrepreneurs are leading the way by exemplifying how we might use innovative tactics to create real and tangible solutions.
