On Thursday, June 13, 2019, Henry County Women In Business is co-hosting their First Economic Summit in partnership with Stockbridge Mayor Anthony Ford. Founder, Ariel Shaw MBA, has aligned a stellar panel of speakers that include The Coca Cola Company’s 5by20 Representative and Director of Global Supplier Diversity, Eyvon Austin, as well as world-renowned Wealthbuilder and Investor, Sonia Booker. The focus of this initiative is to help elevate the conversation of economic development in the Southern Crescent and specifically Stockbridge, the largest city in Henry County. The 5by20 program is a global program by The Coca Cola Company to enable 5 million women by the year 2020. Everyone is asking what’s next after Stockbridge successfully beat the legislation to split their city, which is why it was important to have this event here and have Stockbridge’s Economic Development Director, James Touchton, as a panelist. The panel also includes Franchise Expert and Alternative Finance Guru Sylvester Ford.

The event is free to the public with registration and will be held at the Merle Manders Conference Center, located at 111 Davis Road, Stockbridge GA. It will begin with light networking and appetizers and then move into the program. This summit will take the place of the monthly meetings held by Henry County Women In Business, which has seen a surge of support since its inception. Founder Ariel Shaw, MBA, attributes the vast growth and support of the network to the need for a solid and consistent business network for women-owned business and women in business in the Southern Crescent.
