In this article we share inspiration and insight into the meaning of AMPLIFY for all of us.

WBENC introduces “AMPLIFY” as its core theme for the National Conference, a vibrant and empowering call to action that resonates deeply with entrepreneurial women in business. But what does “AMPLIFY” truly mean in this context?
Elevating Women in Business
The “AMPLIFY” theme is fundamentally about enhancing the presence and impact of women in the business realm. This mission extends beyond a mere theme; it is a commitment to elevate the voices of female entrepreneurs, acknowledging and addressing the challenges they may face.
“AMPLIFY” focuses on the practical aspects of elevating women in business, such as creating robust networks for support and collaboration, and offering targeted educational programs to equip them with essential skills in order to succeed. It emphasizes the value of diversity and inclusion in supply chains, urging corporations and government entities to engage with women-owned businesses.
A History of Impact
Since its inception, WBENC has played a pivotal role in amplifying the impact of women in the business arena. This journey of empowerment and growth, deeply embedded in the WBENC ethos, has been marked by a series of strategic initiatives and programs aimed at nurturing the potential of women entrepreneurs.
At the core of the WBENC mission is the creation of an environment conducive to the flourishing of women-owned businesses. This has been achieved through a multifaceted approach that includes programs focused on guidance, insights, and inspiration, where seasoned businesswomen share their expertise and wisdom with emerging entrepreneurs. Such programs have been instrumental in bridging the gap between experience and innovation, providing women with the guidance and support needed to navigate the often complex business landscape.
The “AMPLIFY” theme at the 2024 WBENC National Conference is a continuation and celebration of this enduring legacy. It encapsulates the commitment to not just supporting women in business but actively elevating their status and impact. “AMPLIFY” serves as a powerful reminder of the progress made and the potential that lies ahead. It’s a testament to ongoing dedication to empowering women entrepreneurs, encouraging them to aim higher and achieve greater, thus continually elevating women-owned businesses to new heights of success and influence.
