The Inaugural State of Women Summit was held in Los Angeles on International Women’s Day, March 8th. EmpowHer Institute was invited to participate as a partner organization by the founder, Anu Bhardwaj. Many women of EmpowHer participated in this awe inspired day. The premise of this conference according to Anu Bhardwaj, is rooted in our economic power. In 2020, it is estimated that women will control $20 Trillion dollars of investable capital which is equivalent to twice the GDP of India and China combined. Our world is approaching an unprecedented era in which women are more connected on social media than men, and in an opportune position to reshape the world with innovations that could lead to a more peaceful and prosperous world. Women INVESTING in Women DIGITAL aims to be the epicenter of this incredible new world by connecting capital with the next generation of women, men, boys, and girls committed to improving global economic security of women and girls worldwide.
The conference brought together investors and women with passion and purpose. The speakers and panelists had some inspiring stories to share and called on us all to use our Voice, Power and Money. To those of us joining the global narrative, we must never underestimate the power of our voice and what this means to those who are condemned to a life of silence through a divide that is beyond digital. Much work was done before us and much work lies ahead of us.
