We’re excited to be back and starting 2020 off with an e-newsletter filled with original content designed for you! With a new year (and new decade!) comes new projects and changes, and this is true for Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC).

In this issue of Inner Circle you’ll notice we have a new video series, Around the Circle. These biweekly videos give us the opportunity to chat about amazing women leaders in retail and beyond, as well as news affecting women everywhere. We hope you enjoy our first episode, in which we recap some of the extraordinary things that women leaders accomplished in 2019. Keep your eyes out for Around the Circle episodes in Inner Circle and as well as on WIRLC’s website.

Another big change for WIRLC in 2020 is that we’re adding a fourth city to our On the Road event schedule! We’ll be coming to Chicago in June (date and venue to be announced soon), in addition to our usual On the Road events in Los Angeles, New York City, and San Francisco. We’re excited to be expanding the On the Road experience to even more fabulous women in retail!

We’ll also be producing more members-only content in 2020. Therefore, if you’ve been thinking about joining WIRLC, now is the time! In addition to exclusive access to members-only content, perks of WIRLC membership include access to our private networking forum, free admission to WIRLC events at industry trade shows, discounted registration to our annual Women in Retail Leadership Summit, and so much more! Speaking of the Summit, if you haven’t yet registered, you want to do so ASAP. Like previous years, the 2020 Summit will sell out. Please join us in Miami in April; we’d love to see you there!
