Now in its fourth year, the Women’s Leadership Summit (previously known as the Women’s Empowerment Conference) is intended to provide a personal and professional development opportunity for women across the Triangle through engaging speakers, intentional networking and timely, relevant discussions. The summit will be held from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Julia Jones Daniels Center for Community Leadership at 711 Hillsborough Street in Raleigh, NC.
