Meet WILL, The Women in Leadership League. Who are they? They’re females who are cultivating creativity, motivation and connection to grow businesses and strategic branding through women’s empowerment. And we’re loving this particular bit from their site: “Our community is meant for leaders but embodies those who fulfill their lives with leadership as mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, friends, colleagues, business owners, managers to CEOs.” YAS, ladies.
At the end of the month, we’re hosting a professional networking event in partnership that’ll focus on key topics impacting women in business. Shop women-led small businesses in our boutique pop-up shop, and engage in a curated Q&A with Miami's fiercest femmes. Sisters are doin’ it for themselves, indeed.
