A New York Times article written in 2014 featured the rise of women’s conferences and their growth since the 1970’s. It has now been 3 years and it’s safe to say that this trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Women-focused conferences (usually organized by women for women) happen regularly all around the world and has contributed to a strong community of empowered women.

These conferences are not only an excellent way to gain knowledge but to foster valuable new connections that can enhance your personal and professional life!

10 Powerful Quotes from Girlboss Rally NYC to Inspire Your New Year

After attending the Girlboss Rally in 2017, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t leave there with enough inspiration to last me a lifetime.

Each speaker and panelist was so down-to-earth and genuinely seemed like they wanted to share their best possible advice with the audience. Everything from career advice and finances to relationships to self-development was shared and there’s no better time than the new year to revisit the best quotes to inspire us for the months ahead.
