WHAT IS THE THRIVE TOGETHER CON?

An intentional and inclusive experience for you to gain relevant strategies, real connections and reliable resources to increase your impact and your income.   

 

If you are a diverse professional that is employed and/or a growing entrepreneur and you're ready to take your career to the next level, you're in the right place! 

Advancing at an organization or growing a business often looks different for women and professionals of color. Many leadership development experiences lack the cultural context to provide relevant insights to help talented, ambitious and creative professionals like you thrive in your career. 

 

This is why we created Thrive Together Conference 2020! Get ready for a power packed, action-oriented learning and development experience for reaching your next level!  #letsthrivetogether

INTENTIONAL. INCLUSIVE. IMPACTFUL.
