CU's Women's Council's WILD Summit Nears Selling Out, Surpasses Underwriting Goal More than 30 organizations have contributed to the premier women's inaugural leadership event
BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Women's Council, an outgrowth of the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship at the CU's Leeds School of Business, today announced it is close to selling out registration for its inaugural WILD Summit taking place next month. In addition, the Women's Council has secured financial support from more than 30 organizations across the Front Range, demonstrating passion and enthusiasm for the one-of-a-kind women's leadership event. With only a couple weeks left until the inaugural event takes place on Feb. 1, interested participants are encouraged to register soon to ensure their spot.
The Women's Council WILD Summit is an event that brings together students and inspiring leaders at all stages of their professional careers who can share their experiences, knowledge and passions with each other. During the one-day event, more than 350 Front Range leaders – from students through highly successful and nationally recognized professionals – will delve into the trends that are driving tomorrow's business opportunities and discover how women are influencing change.
"The Women's Council has been a vibrant lifeline for me as I've navigated the sometimes stormy and often solitary waters of entrepreneurship," said Mary Huron Hunter, principal and founder of N8 Communications. "The women I've met, the connections I've made and the work I've done have inspired me to stretch, open and recommit myself to my path over and over again."
Supporters for the WILD Summit have come from organizations of all kinds and sizes, and span across the Front Range. A list of the major supporters for the WILD Summit is available on the Women Council's website (http://cudemingcenterwomenscouncil.org/index.html) and includes companies such as title supporter Ogilvy & Mather, as well as Rudi's Organic Bakery, Comcast/NBC Universal, Catapult PR-IR, Schuchat, Herzog & Brenman, and WhiteWave among many others.
"It is so gratifying to see the amount of support we have received from organizations around the Front Range," said Cindy Carrillo, event chair for the WILD Summit and former chair of the Women's Council. "It clearly demonstrates the need for an event such as this that helps foster growth, development, learning and sharing among women across all industries and levels of experience."
