At Innovation Women, our mission is to help every woman become a speaker. Speakers succeed. Speaking supports business and career success. Public speaking can help you connect with potential customers, partners, the media, and even new jobs and investors.  Visibility = Opportunity! By connecting speakers and female subject matter experts to these opportunities, we help women (and those who identify as women or non-binary, and male allies) with opportunities to build their brand, grow their businesses and advance their careers.

“Thank you also for tweeting about us being at the event. I didn’t realize that Innovation Women was so wonderfully hands-on with the speakers once they were selected. Things were great at the WGBH Boston Talks event. It was a great group of people, and I really enjoyed it. They should definitely keep using Innovation Women to find more female speakers. As you know, it was 3 guys and me! The event was extraordinarily well-run and well-planned. They gave us all the supports and guidance needed to talk on stage.”
