2018 NC Women’s Summit

The North Carolina Women’s Summit: Women Moving Mountains is November 10, 2018 at The Collider in Downtown Asheville. This is the first time in four years we’ve gone west and we’re very excited about the journey.

Join women leaders from across North Carolina to discuss policies as they relate to women in the state. This annual event, coordinated by Women AdvaNCe, aims to pool together the perspectives of all women in the Tar Heel State, so we can collectively shape the politics and policies of our state.


Members of the Asheville Community Committee: (L to R), Leah Wong Ashburn, Callie Warner, Juanita Wilson, Sarah Benoit, Polly Schattel and Stephanie Carson

The Summit includes multiple main stage sessions, break out sessions, panel discussions, and a curated Women AdvaNCe Ideas and Products Market for women-led businesses and organizations.


A limited number of reduced price rooms are available at the Crowne Plaza in Asheville. Please reserve your room early by clicking on this link.

Topics we plan to cover in this Summit include:

  • Race Equity
  • Living Wage/Affordable Housing
  • Equal Rights Amendment: How Do We Get NC on Board?
  • Midterm Postmortum – How Do We Move Forward with Female Leadership?
  • Intersectionality – How do we get out of our silos and have inclusive and productive conversation with eachother?
