Fifth Anniversary Women of the Vine & Spirits Global Symposium
Meritage Resort & Spa | Napa, California
Connect, Collaborate, Commit
Join us for the largest gathering of women and men dedicated to collaborating, supporting and advancing women in the alcohol beverage industry, worldwide.
The Fifth Anniversary Women of the Vine & Spirits Global Symposium provides you with a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals taking action to promote diversity and equality, foster mentorship for future generations, and create a world-wide, all-inclusive industry. Notable industry leaders will leave you moved and inspired as they share how they embraced their personal empowerment to thrive in a male-dominated industry.
Belonging to the Women of the Vine & Spirits community gives you a louder voice, reaffirms your commitment to take action and provides you with an empowered community of women and men who support YOU to take risks, speak up, believe in yourself, step up and step out.
