2020 REACH Conference Sizzle

A small group of diverse professional women began meeting together in Winston-Salem in August of 2017. What started as a safe place to seek counsel and encouragement evolved into a team of collaborators committed to improving the lives of women in the workplace. In 2018, the group became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization called the REACH Women's Network.



The REACH Women's Network seeks to advance economic development and promote gender equity by elevating the collective voice and influence of women in the workplace.


In pursuit of this mission, the REACH Women's Network aims to strengthen the vitality, creativity, productivity and sustainability of our workplaces, our economy and our community.
