Women’s History Month

This Women’s History Month I invite you to take a look back at the hundreds of inspiring women who shared their wisdom and insights at Trademark’s many events. In producing unforgettable experiences for our clients over the years, my team and I have had the great honor of bringing trailblazing female speakers to the stage.  Together, we’ve created forums where they can impart their knowledge, uplift attendees, and encourage each of us to push ourselves to be the best we can be so we can all make a positive impact on this world. Their passion and commitment is a lesson to us all. From authors to peace activists, astronauts to comedians and titans of industry, each of these women has made their mark. Will you be next?
