Generation W Goes Virtual
Orender said the event will include ten workshops with business leaders on topics from defining your personal brand and personal style, to financial wellness and more. All who register will have special access to an exclusive post-conference event, which is in addition to all of the Generation W Vision 20/20 content.
The event makes possible the year-round work of Generation W, a national 501C-3 nonprofit based in Jacksonville Beach. Proceeds support the ongoing work and results-oriented programming on behalf of women and girls leadership and broader community building.
Programming includes Generation W, Generation WOW, Generation WORKS, and WOWsdom!, along with the Girl’s Guide to the Positive and the Possible, which are all designed to fulfill the mission of elevating the human spirit and helping to create a culture where all women and girls are valued, and equity is prized.
