"I'm a big believer in women supporting other women," said Arianna Huffington, in an interview with Emerging Women founder Chantal Pierrat. "This is a time for us to really reach out, help each other, and at the same time when we do that, we bring out the best in ourselves." In the spirit of helping one another, this year Emerging Women will introduce a new online membership program. This interactive membership platform will allow like-minded women leaders to connect on a more meaningful level, discussing challenges in a safe space, and sharing their advice and successes with one another.
Emerging Women was founded in 2012 by Chantal Pierrat, a University of Colorado MBA graduate and former VP of Sales and Marketing of a multimedia publishing company. The organization's mission is to increase the pipeline of women leaders and entrepreneurs across the globe. "Emerging Women is about creating a world where women have a strong voice in the creation of our future," says Pierrat. "Feminine Leadership is connected leadership. In this age of social media and connection-based technology, now more than ever the world needs what women have innately known for millennia – that together we can create seismic change." Through organizing international events, networking circles, and motivational online content, Emerging Women works to create a sustainable future where feminine attributes like connection, empathy, intuition and heart are held as powerful values.
As part of its commitment to encouraging women to take on positions of power and lead authentically, Emerging Women will offer several scholarships to the 2016 conference to women from nonprofit Girls Who Code, co-working community HUB Oakland, and investing program Pipeline Angels.
The 2016 Emerging Women Live Conference has many valued sponsors aligned with the mission of empowering women leaders and entrepreneurs, including Microsoft, MailChimp, Charles Schwab, Little Bird Marketing, The Institute for Feminine Leadership, and others including nonprofits, magazines, and social networking platforms.
