What do we do?
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 and training through an annual conference and frequent regional connection opportunities.
Why do we do it?
This organization is dedicated to contributing to the ongoing success of Wyoming women! Connect2Women offers mindful, relevant, and unique content that benefits women directly, but also their teams, organizations, and families. When women participate in a Connect2Women workshop or event, they will return stronger, more conﬁdent, and more mindful leaders.
“I really could see the clear intention to foster encouragement and getting outside of your comfort bubble of friends/familiar faces. I also greatly valued the vulnerability in the messages of the strong, brave women who spoke." —PAST ATTENDEE
How do we know it works?
We know Connect2Women's approach works because of the overwhelming feedback we receive that tells us so! But don't just take our word for it. Research recently published in the Harvard Business Review found that well-curated women's conferences can increase both attendees' income and optimism. By working with the Conference for Women, researchers Michelle Gielan and Shawn Achor sought “to test the long-term effects of uniting women.” When comparing attendees to people who registered but had not yet attended (the control group), attendees were twice as likely to receive a promotion within a year of the conference and were three times as likely to get a 10%+ pay increase.
Uniting women to celebrate, inspire and be inspired, mentoring others to become exceptional leaders for our current and future communities.
