New York (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
The first and only week designed to celebrate and inspire women, S.H.E. Summit Week (June 10-16), is back for its second year with an expanded lineup of global events and a marquee women’s leadership and lifestyle conference, S.H.E. Summit (June 14-15).
S.H.E. Summit Week will feature approximately 100 pop-up events designed for and by women held in cities coast to coast — including metropolises like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta; along with smaller locations like Addison, Texas; Newcastle, Wash.; and Indianapolis — making it a truly national women’s week. Worldwide, S.H.E. Summit Week will include events in London, Toronto, Madrid and even Nairobi.
“With Restaurant Week, Fashion Week, Internet Week, Social Media Week and even Shark Week, we have weeks dedicated to celebrating and learning about almost everything under the sun. Yet women, who make up more than half the U.S. population, drive 85 percent of all purchasing decisions, and own more than 8.6 million businesses that generate over $ 1.3 trillion in revenues, had no week to call their own until S.H.E. Summit Week,” said Founder Claudia Chan. “S.H.E. Summit Week is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate women’s achievements, while offering women a dedicated week to serve their passions and curiosities, while discovering new brands and relationships.”
Standing for “She Helps Empower,” S.H.E. Summit Week was created by Women’s Leadership and Lifestyle Expert Claudia Chan. Her namesake media brand, ClaudiaChan.com, features insightful, inspiring interviews with almost 200 remarkable women leaders, such as Model and Activist Christy Turlingon Burns, Dress for Success CEO Joi Gordon, Philanthropist Jennifer Buffett and Humanitarian Zainab Salbi, along with many emerging women leaders and entrepreneurs who are disrupting business as usual. Through S.H.E. Summit Week, Chan offers women everywhere a chance to connect in person with the female role models and organizations featured year round on her website. Events across the country and worldwide will cover topics that interest women, including networking, entrepreneurship, career development, personal finance, beauty, wellness and causes, giving women a chance to gather in person, learn, celebrate and find inspiration in each other.
