“The ELS Forum allowed me to increase my network, of course, but it also helped me understand my personal career path, moving forward.”

“I loved the session on Why Women Need to Help Other Women Succeed. It was a rallying cry! I think that’s something that needs to beaten into us over and over and over, is that we have so much power and opportunity at our disposal, but we have to believe that we actually have that. That takes repetition and it takes conferences like this to really build the belief. You guys have done an absolutely tremendous job of doing that.”
