This Year’s Theme: T R A N S F O R M A T I O N
August 25, 2018
We’re brining the Elevate Women to Sacramento to take advantage of the amazing food scene, the great weather, and all those local wines. It’s just 2 hours from the Bay Area by car or train, and even has a fancy international airport!
Our partners at The Urban Hive will be hosting us all day in their amazing coworking and gallery space. Our Mini Marketplace Happy Hour will feature local NorCal artists, jewelers, and crafters, all selling products with purpose.
Some of Our Amazing Speakers
We’ll be announcing more speakers soon, but you can bet each talk you’ll hear will be inspiring, emotional, instructional, and unique.
