Attendees can expect to take part in an inspiring and empowering event at the gorgeous Winmock at Kinderton in Bermuda Run surrounded by a community of women ready to learn and grow both personally and professionally.

Empowering Our Community of Women

Forsyth Woman has brought together an incredible group of local leading ladies from those in business, to owners and entrepreneurs, for a day full of impactful presentations, networking, shopping, food & drinks, and much more.

Forsyth Woman is thrilled to be hosting this conference! We feel it perfectly aligns with our mission of celebrating women,” said Brooke Eagle, Publisher of Forsyth Woman magazine. “We knew we wanted to name the conference after our most popular and renowned column. ‘Women on the Move’ has highlighted the incredible accomplishments of women in our community since Forsyth Woman’s inception 16 years ago! We feel that this conference is bringing our column to life and can’t wait to see it in action!”

A Conference Experience Designed With you In Mind

This event has been created for women of all ages and all walks of life. Attendees do not need to be a business owner or in any specific niche for this event to make an impact. Brooke shared that, “Each and every one of our speakers were strategically and thoughtfully chosen to ensure every woman gets so much out of this experience. We want you to come as you are and know you are exactly where you need to be!”

The Women on the Move Leadership Conference is going to kick your week off right when you arrive on Monday morning to a room filled with women as hungry for a purpose and passion filled life as you are. This isn’t just a sit in your seat and take notes kind of conference – there will be opportunities for networking and community building with an amazing group of like-minded women. In between standout speaker presentations, local vendors will be joining throughout the day for photo ops, an afternoon cocktail hour featuring Thirsty Buffalo and of course – in true Forsyth Magazines fashion – opportunities to shop and support local retail businesses!

Lunch will be catered by Providence Restaurant & Catering with a plethora of snacks and beverages available to give you energy throughout the day. Attendees can look forward to receiving swag bags filled with products and special discounts from all sorts of local businesses, as well as the chance to win one of several door prizes announced throughout the day.
