Small Business Focus: AWE Women in Business Summit

This column is sponsored by BizLaunch, a division of Arlington Economic Development.

The AWE Women in Business Summit is back again in 2022, and BizLaunch is excited to support the program once again as the keynote sponsor.

The Summit is hosted by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce at Marymount University on February 4. This impactful half-day conference features panel discussions and presentations from experienced female leaders from across the region.

Designed for women entrepreneurs, executives and professionals of all levels, all genders and gender identities are welcome at the AWE Women in Business Summit.  The Summit will provide education, inspiration and connections to foster success, helping attendees achieve their personal and professional goals.

On February 11, come inside when the museum’s galleries reopen with two new exhibitions: Rebecca Rivas Rogers: Grey View and Crisis of Image.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.
