A little history…

WomenCentric launched in 2005 as a speaking group to spark new opportunities for five dynamic women. We gave corporate training and entrepreneurial workshops, and met countless amazing women. In 2011, I launched a beta online directory, providing a positive space to discover new paths via stories of other women’s journeys, as well as deals and discounts to valuable Conferences and events. Our motto: ‘get listed, get found’ appealed to many – and within several years our roster included talented, ambitious women from 31 countries. Today we’re educating and empowering diverse career women and business owners, as well as a broad range of corporate, entrepreneurial and non-profit clients.
