*Women AdvaNCe – 2018 NC WOMEN’S SUMMIT MOVING MOUNTAINS
The North Carolina Women’s Summit: Women Moving Mountains is November 10, 2018 at The Collider in Downtown Asheville. This is the first time in four years we’ve gone west and we’re very excited about the journey.
More details will be announced this spring, but the Summit will be in late October/early November and we hope you’ll make plans to join us.
Join women leaders from across North Carolina to discuss policies as they relate to women in the state. This annual event, coordinated by Women AdvaNCe, aims to pool together the perspectives of all women in the Tar Heel State, so we can collectively shape the politics and policies of our state.
The Summit includes multiple main stage sessions, break out sessions, panel discussions, and a curated Women AdvaNCe Ideas and Products Market for women-led businesses and organizations.
Topics we plan to cover in this Summit include:
- Race Equity
- Living Wage/Affordable Housing
- Equal Rights Amendment: How Do We Get NC on Board?
- Midterm Postmortum – How Do We Move Forward with Female Leadership?
- Intersectionality – How do we get out of our silos and have inclusive and productive conversation with eachother?

About Women AdvaNCe
Women AdvaNCe was founded in 2012 by Laura B. Edwards, a political activist and philanthropist, troubled by the lack of data-driven, factual messaging on women’s issues in North Carolina. Despite the fact that, according to Global Media Monitoring Project, women make up 52 percent of the population in NC, nearly 80 percent of major news articles fail to focus on women-specific content. This gap, coupled with the rising tide of attacks on women’s rights in NC, motivated Laura to create a new organization that delivers thoughtful content and builds a supportive community that empowers women and enables women leaders to further the cause of full equality.
