Welcome Aboard Greetings

On behalf of the Women’s Empowerment Summit, Inc. board of directors, I officially welcome you to the 2015 Midwest Women’s Empowerment Conference/Cruise. We are very excited to take this conference to the sea where we will experience great fellowship, great food, great surprises, and great opportunities to encourage women to stir up their gifts within! So far women from 20 states have registered for this conference/cruise. As the word continues to spread, women are continuing to sign up. If you know of other women who might be interested in our conference/cruise, have them contact us.


This year’s recipient of the Founder’s Award will be the CEO & publisher of HOPE Magazine Angelia White. Celebrating 10 years of publishing, this lady has persevered through the tough times of trying to get her publication off the ground. You will meet her and hear about her story on the cruise. Check out the magazine at  


Did you know that if you make calls using your cell phone while on the cruise you’ll be charged international rates? Check our BLOG to find out about this and other valuable cruise tips from our board member and seasoned world traveler Teresa Barbee.
