"Each [WXW event] unquestionably leaves me feeling energized and inspired in a way that feels almost like having a really great hangout with a bunch of your smartest and most kindred girlfriends — you know, the kind who know what they want and aren’t afraid to go after it, and will love you and support you while giving you the kick in the pants that you didn’t even know you needed."

"Being a solo practitioner can also be a little bit of a lonely business lifestyle. But through WXW, I’ve met a lot of others in my same shoes, and the events cover such a broad variety of topics that I feel like I’m always adding something new to my problem solving toolkit, for both myself and my clients."
Carole Baker, Scalable Informatics
"I LOVE to refer women to the WXW because of their deep understanding of how to make it work for women in this county and this state. The energy of WXW is strongly positive! No memberships are required, just your heart that’s open to meeting & helping others as well as yourself."
