WOMEN LEADING REGENERATIVE
SUMMIT


Women Leading Regenerative Summit

"The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind."
~Maya Angelou

Plan to participate in the premier gathering of women leaders who are energizing an evolution to address the systemic health of business, people and planet through a regenerative lens. The Women Leading Regenerative Summit is At the Epicenter’s showcase of women that are spiriting the charge. If you care about bringing your values to the workplace and are interested in gaining insight in how to improve the positive impact of your brand or service, then this event has much to offer you. With opportunity for rich interaction between speakers, discussion leaders and participants, the Women Leading Regenerative Summit is different from most conferences. Your voice, perspective and ideas matter.


Regeneration
re·gen·er·a·tion  rəˌjenəˈrāSH(ə)n/

Regeneration is the process of renewal, and restoration that makes life and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Regenerative concepts take sustainability to the next level, moving from ‘doing less bad’ to actually ‘doing good’ for people and planet.

Why The Summit

Making holistic decisions that develop just and reciprocal relationships among stakeholders is an historic strength of women. The Women Leading Regenerative Summit celebrates this attribute by bringing leaders, visionaries, and pioneers together to share insights and wisdom, strength and character from the soil to the board room.

Who’s Coming

Women Leading Regenerative Summit is a forum open to women and men. The Summit will feature a full day of mindful interaction and discussion into the roles business plays in transforming the workplace into a life-space of restoration to culture and planet. The one-day Summit will include regenerative slams, panel discussions, and tabletop interactive working sessions, all facilitated by women. Together, we will explore the value of collaborative relationships, designing for impact and building greater success and satisfaction into our business and life.
