Women Are Talking was founded to provide a space where women can share ideas, resources and experiences in order to have a direct impact on the lives and advancement of women around the world. We do this through the facilitation of mentor-ship & sponsorship, supporting women in their individual and corporate business endeavors, making business connections and fostering the powerful concept of women actively becoming involved in helping to empower other women.
Founded by former corporate executive, Bonnie McDaniel who is currently Chief Creative Officer of McDaniel & Company, a boutique strategic branding and marketing agency serving clients primarily in Washington DC and New York.
This annual event has become the global standard for women helping women through virtual connections. She is also a writer, speaker, media consultant, mentor (Levoleague & Running Start Star Fellows), television contributor for ABC’s Let’s Talk Live, CNN (HLN News Now) and the television host of Metro Magazine with Bonnie McDaniel, which airs on the ION Television Network.
In addition to the Women Are Talking Annual Summit, Women Are Talking works throughout the year to provide mentoring, support and resources to women in business and those who seek to give back through their work in the area of non-profits. A big focus is also placed on helping up and coming women professionals to navigate the road to becoming successful in their careers and personal endeavors. The Women Are Talking Initiative has grown to include a network of women’s organizations and businesses totaling over 500,000.
