The mission of Governor McAuliffe’s Virginia Women’s Summit is to engage and empower women across the Commonwealth to realize their full potential and lead in their communities, businesses, and government.

I am pleased that the Virginia Council on Women has taken the lead on organizing the Virginia Women’s Summit,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Virginia women are mothers, students, business owners, and leaders, and this summit provides an opportunity for women across the Commonwealth to connect to one another and to state resources as they continue to lead in their respective communities.”

The purpose of the Virginia Council on Women is to help women reach their potential and maximize their contributions to society and the Commonwealth as wage earners and citizens. The Council has initiated several projects to meet this goal. One is the Virginia Women’s Summit. For more information on the Council, please visit:
