As we celebrate International Women’s Month, the Greenville Convention Center is proud to highlight the incredible events and initiatives aimed at empowering and uplifting women in our community. From mentoring programs to networking opportunities, we are honored to host events that support women’s growth, development, and success. 

One such organization making a profound impact is Women’s Confidence Builders (WCB). Their mission to educate, mentor, disciple, and empower all people while building confidence and inclusivity resonates deeply with us. Through mentoring, WCB provides invaluable feedback and guidance to individuals, helping them become more confident and capable in facing life’s challenges. Mentors serve as role models, encouraging mentees to step out of their comfort zones and embrace new opportunities. Additionally, WCB offers expert consulting to support women and minority-owned businesses, ensuring they thrive in today’s competitive landscape. 

Clemson University’s Women’s Roundtable Event is another remarkable initiative aimed at promoting the experiences of girls and women, particularly in STEM fields. This developmental and networking opportunity brings together hundreds of participants to emphasize the importance of education, self-care, and preservation. Through keynote speeches, panel discussions, and roundtable conversations, the Women’s Roundtable provides invaluable support and mentorship to women navigating professional and educational environments. 

We are also honored to have hosted the 66th South Atlantic Regional Conference (SARC) of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority at the Greenville Convention Center. With nearly 5,000 members in attendance, the conference focused on key program initiatives such as women’s healthcare and wellness, building economic legacy, and global impact. Through various activities and engagements, members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority demonstrated their commitment to community service, scholarship programs, and supporting women’s empowerment. 

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, founded in 1908 at Howard University, is the oldest Greek-letter organization established by black women in America. Led by International President Dr. Glenda Glover, the sorority’s members exemplify dedication and leadership in their pursuit of social change and empowerment. 

As we reflect on these inspiring events and organizations, we are reminded of the importance of supporting and uplifting women in our community. The Greenville Convention Center remains committed to providing a platform for initiatives that empower women, foster inclusivity, and promote positive change. Together, we celebrate the achievements and contributions of women everywhere, not just during International Women’s Month, but every day of the year. Join us in empowering women and building a brighter future for all.
