Connect2Women is a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring women to reach greater heights, impacting through quality professional and personal development that includes leadership training, mentoring and negotiating skills training, all while engaging them with interactive workshops, skills building and regional connection opportunities. 



Connect2Women began in 2016 by a group of women that wanted to unite women with the intent to inspire and be inspired, mentoring others to become exceptional leaders and share ideas and concerns to improve their community and state. They held the first-ever Connect2Women Conference in September 2016. 

In 2018, Kate Hayes purchased Connect2Women, turning it into a nonprofit because she saw the potential and the need for creating a community of women dedicated to personal and professional development for women of all ages. Since then, Connect2Women has been bringing women together to inspire, impact and engage with each other through live events, mentoring programs, virtual coffee hours and a Virtual Summit Series.
