Hyattsville, MD -- Recognizing the challenges women often face to own and operate their own business and level the playing field, business strategist Betty J. Hines marks the one-year anniversary of the Women Elevating Women (W.E.W.) conference where multicultural female executives and entrepreneurs from around the country will gather to share their stories and strategies for success and economic empowerment.

The event will pre-launch International Women's Day - a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - and include sessions that highlight business cultures, unconscious biases, gender equality, the need for diversity and personal growth tools that enable professional business women to survive and thrive drawing on W.E.W.'s five Pillars of Success: Cultivate, Communicate, Collaborate, Courage and Connect.

"From my 40 years of experience as both a corporate executive and woman business owner, I know firsthand the challenges multicultural professional women face - trying to survive and thrive in a fast-paced and constantly changing business community," said Hines, who is founder and CEO of W.E.W. "This must-attend conference will engage women in an active dialogue on successful strategies to scale and grow their businesses, including how to close the wealth gap, tapping hidden financial resources, maintaining good health to increase wealth and cultivating the future by protecting their legacy. I am thrilled to host W.E.W's one-day conference that will bring together so many like-minded business professionals."

Article On Women Elevating Women (W.E.W.) Conference Continues Below...

The W.E.W. conference, which will be held at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Hyattsville, Md., will feature closing keynote speaker Crystal Khalil, director of procurement and the highest ranking female executive at Porsche Cars North America. Khalil has over 20 years of global supply chain industry leadership experience and is skilled in negotiating complex service agreements and managing $600 million annually in commodity spending.

"Leadership in the supply chain industry is typically male-dominated and it's very difficult for women to excel in the profession," Khalil said. "Proving yourself and developing relationships is critical. I had to earn my seat at the table. As the first African-American female executive at Porsche, I know many young women and people of color look at me and are empowered by what I do every day. In my position, I have the ability to inspire other women and people of color and let them see that the next level is eminent if they maximize their leadership and potential. This is also why the mission of Women Elevating Women is so critically important and why I'm honored to be a part of it."

As part of the conference, W.E.W. will feature a distinguished lunch panel of highly successful men to discuss how they help elevate women and why inclusion matters. This panel, moderated by Marvin Dickerson, president and CEO of Dickerson Technologies LLC, and former vice chair and board member of 100 Black Men of America, Inc., will include: Rick Hayes, divisional advance sales officer of New York Life Insurance Company; Alexander G. Núñez, senior vice president of regulatory and external affairs at Baltimore Gas and Electric Company; and David Harrington, president and CEO of the Prince George's Chamber of Commerce.

Sessions highlighting W.E.W.'s five Pillars of Success will include panelists Kristina Bouweiri, president and CEO of Reston Limousine in Dulles, Va.; Camille Burns, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Women Presidents' Educational Organization and the Women Presidents' Organization in New York, N.Y.; Marguerita Cheng, CEO of Blue Ocean Global Wealth in Gaithersburg, Md.; Sandra P. Eberhard, executive director of Women Presidents' Educational Organization-DC; Angela Franco, former president and CEO of the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; Carolyn E. Howell, founder of EVENTS USA in Seabrook, Md.; Dr. Barbara A. Hutchinson, managing partner of Chesapeake Cardiac Care in Annapolis, Md.; Dr. Angela M. Marshall, board certified internist at Comprehensive Women's Health in Silver Spring, Md.; Monica T. McCoy, global speaker and founder of MonicaMotivates, LLC in Conyers, Ga.; Gina Merritt, owner of Northern Real Estate Urban Ventures in Washington, D.C.; Joy Rahat, founder and CEO of Joy Rahat Media in Washington, D.C.; Stacie L. Redmon, president and CEO of Strategy and Management Services, Inc., in Springfield, Va.; Ciemone A. Sheppard, licensed New York Life Insurance Company agent and co-founder of Sheppard Benefits Group, Inc., in Los Angeles, Calif.; and Janice Tippett, president and CEO of Millennium Marketing Solutions in Annapolis Junction, Md.

With 40 years of business experience, strategic business consultant Betty J. Hines has facilitated roundtable discussions and counseled business leaders on how to change their current paradigm into something that converts business challenges into opportunities. In 2018, she founded Women Elevating Women, a business conference that provides a platform where multicultural women business owners and executives come together to openly share and discuss challenges facing today's business women and strategies for success.
