"The tools and knowledge acquired over the 3 days left me feeling confident and inspired. Most importantly, I gained a support system of women that have been a rock for me throughout a tumultuous 2020. I am honored I was selected to participate in the inaugural SWIM Summit and I highly recommend applying to attend. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving."
