2016 Inspire Summit: Be Inspired
On November 11, 2016, Weaver hosted our bi-annual Inspire Summit in North Texas with the theme “Define Success on Your Own Terms”. The event, hosted for future female leaders across the firm, consisted of a reception, and a customized program directed at the specific needs of our current and future women. The daylong event featured an entertaining and inspiring visit from The Fort Worth-based improv group, Four Day Weekend, followed by sessions on values-based time management and leadership skills, and concluded with a panel of firm leaders discussing the “Journey to Success” for women. The day was full of empowering conversations, professional growth and laughter. The Summit is one of many ways Weaver is committed to recognizing the contributions of our female leaders.
