As the fifth annual Women in Retail Leadership Summit (WIRLS) comes to a close, the entire Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) team wanted to take a minute to say thank you to all of our fabulous speakers, attendees and sponsors.

WIRLC started five years ago with the goal of supporting and advocating for women across retail to learn, connect and grow. We’re over the moon that our community has grown tenfold over the last five years, and truly feel the sky is the limit! Below are just a few of our favorite quotes from this year’s WIRLS:

“When you start something with your heart, make your head follow so then everything makes sense.” — @JessicaHerrin #WIRSummit

“Success correlates just as closely with confidence as it does with competency.” — Sharon Price John, CEO, @buildabear #WIRSummit

“Bet on yourself. Ask yourself if you’re in the right place at the right time” — Carrie Ask, @LEVIS

“When you’re grateful for what you already have, you attract more goodness into your life.” — Rear Admiral June Ryan #WIRSummit

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you and cheers to five years (and many more!)

The WIRLC Team
