WoWE Leadership Forum: Expanding Your Toolkit. Powering Our Future.
Thank you to our Sponsors:
2016 Lead Sponsor:
Please consider staying in San Antonio and registering to attend the AWEA Fall Symposium just after the WoWE Leadership Forum.
What do past WoWE Leadership Forum Attendees have to say?
It was amazing seeing so many talented women in wind energy in one place.
I felt so empowered when I left. It was an incredible experience to hear the stories of the successful women around me and I learned some tools to help push me further in my career.
Validating to see all the different avenues there are to becoming a leader in the industry
Meeting high profile and successful women in the wind industry and hearing their encouragement.
Great event. Can’t wait for next year!
