Join us for our newest series, WE Read!
WE Read provides access to an informal environment that fosters conversations about substantive books that can inspire, develop and empower women in business.
The Chamber will host four WE Read events in 2020. Each event will feature a new book and a new facilitator, and they all will be held at lunchtime.
WE Read started as an idea from attendees at last year's Leadercast Women conference, and we will kick off WE Read with a book from one of the Leadercast Women speakers, Elaine Welteroth. Her book, More Than Enough, has been dubbed the "Millennial Becoming", and is definitely worth a read!

"Elaine Welteroth has written the ultimate guide for how to come into your own, on your own terms. Packed with honesty and warmth, 
More Than Enough is a must read for women of all ages and walks of life."
-Karlie Kloss
"Elaine gifts us all with a beautifully intimate and powerful retelling of her ever unfolding journey. In sharing her joys, pitfalls, adventures, self doubt, and successes, she reminds us that through uncovering and discovering the many facets of ourselves, we are more than enough.”
-Yara Shahidi
“Elaine is a jolt of honesty, positivity, and inspiration. Anyone who has ever felt like she doesn’t belong will feel less alone after reading More Than Enough. Elaine’s voice couldn’t be more important, and more important right now.”
-Sophia Amoruso
