Special thanks to our sponsors, especially our presenting sponsor Kirkland & Ellis, donors, volunteers and staff for your generosity in helping CWE help women and veteran entrepreneurs realize their dreams of becoming successful, prosperous business owners We are so grateful that you could join us to celebrate and support them in business.
The event was a moment where CWE was as entrepreneurial and brave as we ask our clients to be every day! The event committee led the charge to create an online event with the goal of providing a sense of intimacy and connection that we traditionally experience when we are all in the same room together. We invited our entire CWE community to join us - and they were there! We invited our community to financially support our work - and they donated generously! It was truly a very special night.
"Lifting up the women who lift up the world" is a team sport that requires every single one of us! Thank you for your support, passion, and ingenuity to move CWE forward through 2020 and beyond.
