Women's Entrepreneurship Day Forum

Fri 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Topic: Business Basics

Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED) is a day on which the work of women entrepreneurs is observed and discussed, held every year on November 19th. WED is designed to ignite a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate startups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities around the world.


Join us as we celebrate Women's Entrepreneurship Day (slightly ahead of schedule) with a FREE Women's Entrepreneurship networking event and luncheon featuring Ashley Cox, Founder + CEO of SproutHR. Ashley is a thought leader who brings knowledge and heart + is an EXPERT on hiring and leadership!

This is an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss issues, especially important woman-owned business issues.


Ashley Cox is a certified HR professional with over 16 years of experience and has worked with many business owners – from local brick and mortars to online agencies to multi-million dollar national & international companies.

Ashley wrote her first book, Transform Your Stories, to guide women to overcome the stories that hold them back so they can become confident and courageous leaders who create resounding impact in the world.

Previously, Ashley was a leadership expert and top recruiter for J.Crew and Kroger where she hired and developed everyone from the newest hourly employees to C-suite level executives. She has led teams from 1 to 400 employees and has been on teams developing massive corporate-wide trainings for $100B companies employing over 350k employees.

This event is open to the public (anyone can attend) and FREE, however, pre-registration is REQUIRED.
