The Women’s Leadership Summit (WLS) is proud to be the voice of African American women and the champion for established and emerging female leaders in the Dallas Region.

Our mission is to ensure that the talents of women are proportionately recognized, utilized and valued.  As women are not properly represented at the tables of decision-making, our objective is to empower the next generation to change our course.

 

Since 2018, WLS has held two successful Summits, bringing together nearly 500 women to share their wisdom and experiences in how they have made a difference while rising to the acme in their respective roles as leaders.

 

WLS has earned a reputation as a premier convener of African American female business executives, policy makers, entrepreneurs  and community leaders to address the challenges facing our region, while finding ways to take advantage of opportunities on the horizon.

 

One way we accomplish this is through our high-quality interactive learning and sharing sessions. We also offer several panel discussions featuring dynamic women leaders from across the country who share the intimate details of their journey and experiences as it relates to their personal growth and development. Ultimately, WLS offers a safe environment for our attendees to learn, share, and grow.

About

NOTICE TO POSTPONE DUE TO COVID-19

 

 

Greetings,

The Women’s Leadership Summit (WLS)  is carefully monitoring the Coronavirus COVID-19 situation and will follow the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities. We are fully dedicated and committed to protecting the health, safety and well-being of our participants, partners, and the community. 

Due to this rare public health threat and the associated uncertainty, WLS will postpone its 3rd Annual Summit originally scheduled for June 12-13, 2020. We are optimistically looking to reschedule in October 2020.  Rescheduling WLS will enable us to provide the experience that our participants and partners expect and deserve in a safe environment.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the health and safety of our community very seriously. We will share more information about our plans to reschedule as it becomes available in the coming weeks. We are deeply grateful for your support and engagement. Thank you for your understanding and continued support as we work together to strengthen and empower women.  

Best regards, 

Helen Giddings

WLS Chair
