A diverse group of speakers will provide information about how women can become engaged and become leaders at any level.”

Former Delegate Katherine Waddell, Special Advisor on Women’s Issues said, “Governor McAuliffe’s Women’s Summit is a very special project designed to promote and increase women’s leadership in community, business and government. It is an exciting venture and one that has always been a priority for our Governor.”

The purpose of the Virginia Council on Women is to help women reach their potential and maximize their contributions to society and the Commonwealth as wage earners and citizens. The Council has initiated several projects to meet this goal. One is the Virginia Women’s Summit. For more information on the Council, please visit: commonwealth.virginia.gov/council-on-women/.
