Happy October! Can you believe it’s already the fourth quarter? While 2019 is quickly coming to a close, Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) still has many exciting things planned throughout the rest of the year to look forward to. Here are just some of the things to be on the lookout for:

Site Relaunch
We are so excited to be relaunching WIRLC’s website and Inner Circle e-newsletter this month. You’ll notice a fresh color palette, more imagery, and an easier-to-use interface. We’re going to have member Q&A interviews so you can get to know WIRLC members; more original content with our unique blend of retail strategy, leadership insights and executive professional development; and interactive features that drive community building and engagement. We can’t wait to share this new website with you later this month.

WIRLC: On the Road Events
We still have two On the Road events planned for this year: New York City on Oct. 24, and San Francisco on Nov. 7. These one-day events feature inspiring and informative content, private executive coaching opportunities, fun activations, networking with industry leaders, and more. The events ends with cocktails and conversation for you to get even more networking time with your fellow attendees. Register today; I hope to see you there!

In-Depth Research
We’re currently working on a comprehensive report designed to recognize the retailers and brands that are making it a priority to elevate women into leadership positions — including boards of directors — within their organizations. Stay tuned later this year for the full report!
