The Houston Women’s Leadership Summit goes virtual this year as organizers kick off their annual summit on Sept. 24 from 2 – 4:30 p.m. to empower, inspire and educate women. It is online this year due to COVID but now also includes monthly speakers by dial-in and a pass to next year’s in-person summit when safe (all covered in this year’s registration fee). The virtual summit will feature multiple speakers and will be recorded for later viewing for individuals unable to attend the live session.

The organization’s leadership committee has been working hard to transform this temporary safety disruption into a great year-long experience with a series of inspiring and educational women’s leadership topics and success stories. “Together we will get past this dark hour in history and rebuild an even greater future,” said Shelly Fitzgerald, Houston Women’s Leadership Summit planning director.
