2018 Brave Your Brand
Our theme this year was BRAVE YOUR BRAND. We invited two very special speakers to inspire us on authentically crafting and living our personal brand. We are also supporting Women of the World non-profit, which provides hope, support, supplies, education, and positivity to hundreds of women refugees and their families. We were inspired, gave back, and as always, were entertained by The Scarlet Fox! Special thanks to our Holiday Event sponsors, Adobe and Dealertrack!

Please support donations for Women of the World:
During times of war, women endure unimaginable suffering. This vulnerable group suffers tremendously and in great numbers, accounting for 4 out of 5 refugees. Despite the rising numbers of women and children seeking asylum, investment in refugees is inadequate. Only about 4 percent of overseas development assistance goes to gender equality and for every dollar of development assistance, just two cents goes to girls. It’s essential to give women refugees and their families a place to go, a future to grab hold of, and a way to become productive members in the community. You can transform lives when you become a supporter of Women of the World today.
