The 16th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast was not just a breakfast, but a powerful platform to amplify women’s voices in a crucial conversation about entrepreneurship and economic stability. Held at The Woodruff Arts Center on May 2nd the event featured esteemed panelists from various industries, a thought-provoking discussion about financial instability and homelessness in Greater Atlanta, and a unique opportunity to support women entrepreneurs at a women-owned business market.
