Connecting and Promoting Women

Meets 4th Wednesdays of the Month
8:45 - 10:30 AM

Our unique format allows for our attendees to learn from our educational speaker, and connect with our personal story speaker. We also provide an opportunity to do small group networking and brainstorm for a pre-selected dreamer.

A group of women who were fans of “Wise Women Connect” along with others who were fans of ESPW – Encouraging Supporting Promoting Women, shared that they MISSED the closeness that they had felt within these two communities after they stopped meeting.  Hearing how much they were impacted by these groups, Gateway to Dreams jumped on board to help their friends recreate that closeness with a NEW group, Connecting and Promoting Women that launched in January 2016 with over 100 Women.  This group continues to meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month and usually has around 40 women (and a few men) in attendance.  Regular attendance at this event is a member-only benefit; however, visitors are allowed to attend twice, before a membership is required.

Cost:  $25 for guests who pre-register by 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the event. After that time the cost is $35 for guests to register.  

Cost is $15 for members who pre-register by 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the event.  After that time the cost is $25 to register.  Be sure to log into your Gateway to Dreams account before registering to receive member pricing.
