Women Leading Regenerative Summit

“The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind.”
~Maya Angelou

Plan to participate in the premier gathering of women leaders as the natural and organic products industry evolves to address the systemic health of business, people and planet through a regenerative lens. The Women Leading Regenerative Summit is At the Epicenter’s showcase of women that are spiriting the charge.

Regeneration is the process of renewal, and restoration that makes life and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Regenerative concepts take sustainability to the next level, moving from ‘doing less bad’ to actually ‘doing good’ for people and planet.


Why The Summit

Making holistic decisions that develop just and reciprocal relationships amongst stakeholders is an historic strength of women. The Women Leading Regenerative Summit brings leaders, visionaries, and pioneers together to share insights and wisdom, strength and character from the soil to the board room.

Who’s Coming

Women Leading Regenerative Summit will feature a full day of mindful interaction and discussion into the roles business plays in transforming the workplace into a life-space of restoration to culture and planet. The one-day Summit will include keynotes, panel discussions, and tabletop interactive working sessions, all facilitated by women. Together we will focus on providing the best quality products and services, that are considering soil and ecosystem health, in addition to the bottom line in supply chain and manufacturing goals.


Who’s Coming

At the Epicenter is bringing visionary food and fashion industry leadership, farmers, ranchers, entrepreneurs, investors, activists, and academics together to deep dive in a Summit experience designed for the robust flow of ideas, a shared sense of purpose, and the fostering of collaborative relationships. With mindfulness practice, interactive working sessions and inspired presentations, we seek to empower the food and fashion industries and their many stakeholders to bring regenerative principles to the agriculture system. Let’s begin the restoration of our relationship to all the life and envision a new approach to business that restores ecosystems, provides meaningful work and shared prosperity.

If you are bold, passionate and willing to be a catalyst for change — this event welcomes YOU.
