WYSK Launch Luncheon 1The elegant room was filled with the incredible energy that can only come from sitting with and amongst extraordinary women who have outperformed, innovated, discovered, defied and soared.

The importance of shining a spotlight on women who are making things happen (big & small) in their world and ours was made ever more apparent today. It’s not about 15 minutes of fame, but about finding and inspiring each other. So, yesterday we toasted the women all around you and us who don’t always make headlines. We proudly celebrated WOMEN YOU SHOULD KNOW.
