Hi there! My name is Robbie Hardy and I’d like to cordially invite you to join me and other female professionals for Empowering Women Together; a once a month gathering geared towards connection, encouragement and empowerment. It’s so important that we as women encourage and support one another, in business goals and in our dreams for the future.

Each gathering will have a panel of women with varying backgrounds and expertise, prepared to tackle a targeted subject. They will share their advice and support on a central theme, as well as some of the hard lessons we have earned. The gathering will then be opened up to interactive discussion.

This program is for ambitious women who want to invest in themselves and others. If you’re looking for a community of strong, successful and confident professional women, come grow with us. Together, we’ll learn how to live and lead to our fullest potential. 

There is no cost for this event but RSVP is required so we can ensure adequate seating.
