This year will mark the 7th year of Women Are Talking which 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 mentorship, making business connections and fostering the powerful concept of women actively helping and empowering other women.
