Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network Goes Virtual

first_imgA year ago, the DWEN team began to reimagine a new vision for our global community. One that supported us in better serving our membership but also made it possible to meaningfully add value for the female entrepreneurs we serve. Nowhere in our planning could we have predicted the turns 2020 would take nor how this year would provide such immediate opportunity to better serve our membership.  And what a transformative twelve months it has been – for DWEN and our community.To empower our members as they too reimagine their path forward, on July 9th, we hosted 1,000 attendees from over 60 countries, for DWEN’s inaugural Virtual Summit.Featuring a special welcome by Michael Dell and speakers such as Bobbi Brown, Rakia Reynolds, Brian Solis and Kendra Scott – participants received first-hand advice and insights from entrepreneurs who have successfully paved their way to becoming leaders in their industries.”And in partnership with our sponsors, Intel, Microsoft, and Hogan Lovells, we created an engaging environment for attendees to network, learn and share with one another.Our lineup of speakers offered attendees valuable advice on the topics of innovation, pivoting in business, and securing funding; and, personal bits of wisdom in navigating through the changes of 2020. While innovation and big thinking is at the core of the entrepreneurial spirt, sometimes focusing on the basics is critical to evolving. As Bobbi Brown, Founder and CEO of Beauty Evolution, and Rakia Reynolds, Founder and CEO, Skai Blue Media, offered advice to attendees navigating their journeys today. “We did things simply,” Bobbi said of supporting her new brand Evolution_18 through the early stages of the pandemic. “We learned we can save time, energy, money and manpower and still do the right thing for the brand.” Rakia also added how important it is to stay true to the core values of a company and ensure the organizations you work with align with your values as well.Both also spoke of the value of mentorship and in lifting one another up and in being part of a community – particularly now as across the globe we all should be working, thinking, and acting more conscientiously. And that is the role of DWEN. To be an accessible and inclusive community, connecting and inspiring female founders and aspiring entrepreneurs everywhere.Through programs like our Virtual Summit and our new Empower Hour series, we offer members everywhere the opportunity to connect regularly with entrepreneurs and to get advice, support, and resources in defining their path.
