Latinas in Business 2022 Women Entrepreneurs Empowerment Summit (WEES) has confirmed Natalie Madeira Cofield as Keynote Speaker.

Women Entrepreneurs Empowerment Summit Agenda

Keynote Speaker

The summit will be from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm on June 24 at the co-host Berkeley College’s Mid-Manhattan Campus. Registration is now open at https://2022wees.eventbrite.com/.

The 2022 theme is “SUCCEED! How Women Entrepreneurs Make It in America.” It alludes to the struggle that minority women entrepreneurs and female founders face to start and expand their businesses in an environment of discrimination and barriers to opportunities. 

From 11:30 am to 2:30 pm ET, the event includes a keynote speaker, panel speakers of who’s who in each area of development, along with a Lunch Reception and their signature networking session to help women entrepreneurs elevate themselves and their businesses.

“We selected three areas where most women entrepreneurs struggle. These are personal power, financial wellness and business innovation,” Susana G Baumann, President and CEO, explained. Women entrepreneurs have to confront the demands of home-schooling young children, caring for their parents and running their businesses. They are battling with funding and business barriers. In addition, they need to adapt to all the new requirements in the post-pandemic world.

Fourteen Latinas will receive awards for growing businesses or building communities during the Leaders of the Month Awards Ceremony from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm ET. Come to network in a camaraderie environment with an open bar Mixology Reception with Stand-up Comedian Celebrity Speaker GINA BRILLON.

Join us for the event where Latinas in Business Inc. will offer tools, insights, resources and opportunities to connect with others, which will propel you and your business forward to SUCCEED!
