Strategic Initiatives + Events

The City of Raleigh Office of Economic Development and Innovation sponsored the 3rd Annual Moving Forward with Purpose Conference held on March 13, 2019 at the Raleigh Convention Center. Over 150 women and men attended the event hosted by the Women’s Business Center of North Carolina (WBCNC). Attendees learned what resources and support their regional Women's Business Center can provide through a panel discussion. Community business leaders provided advice to attendees on how to empower themselves for success, grow their business and how to best support small businesses. Carnela R. Hill gave the keynote address and shared how she created her path to success to become one of the Top 10 Designers in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. Participants also had the opportunity to engage with exhibiting local businesses and government agencies.
