Happy Monday friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I have been invited to attend the Women Empower X Conference in D.C. on June 15th at the Marriott Marquis DC. This is the third year Women Empower X (WEX) is headed to D.C. and the lineup of speakers and events is looking pretty strong! This conference had originally reached out to me last year, but because I was very pregnant with Luke at the time, I was unable to go – and very bummed at that. So I am very thrilled to be participating this year.
WEX bills itself as the premier event for female leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives. Why wouldn’t I love that tag summary?! I really like that Founder, Alexa Carlin, says she values and encourages collaboration over competition. From what I can tell, WEX events bring together incredibly powerful and inspiring women with a focus on providing the knowledge, tools, and community to help take their business and life to the next level. At WEX you’ll be able to learn from industry experts, network with entrepreneurs and change-makers, discover tools to grow your business, and feel empowered to create a positive change.
A little bit about Alexa: not only is she the Founder & CEO of WEX, she is a nationally renowned public speaker, and Creator of www.BeAPublicSpeaker.com. She founded WEX in 2016 after noticing a need for a national event to connect like-minded women who are passionate about making a difference in the world.
Alexa’s drive to make a difference was inspired after a near-death experience that happened during her senior year at the University of Florida in 2013 leaving her with a 1% chance of living. This experience inspired Alexa to share her story vulnerably to audiences all over the world through public speaking. Her authentic message of resilience and empowerment has led her to grow an engaged following of over 70,000 people on social media.
