About this event:
Speakers will Include:

- Ellen is a #1 bestselling author, keynote speaker, and entrepreneur who has been called a “true change agent” by Marci Shimoff, star of the hit movie The Secret. Her passion for women supporting women is informed by her experience, during adolescence, of terrible bullying at the hands of other girls. Experience matched with later insights about this and related problems led Ellen to create The Society of WE.
