Our Story

The incredible Women Making Waves team has helped this platform grow and diversify in so many big ways. Since its 2019 launch, we have been developing content and incorporating intimate retreats and other programs to build leadership and inspire women across the ocean who continue to make waves in their daily lives and communities.

Our Origins

We began this journey in 2019 by co-creating and hosting in-person events with a local chamber of commerce and the CEO. Our focus was on highlighting inspiring females across various industries. A few months in, we realized this was bigger than our local community and needed to be shared. We took it under new leadership and immediately began gathering a group of committed and talented women to dive in and turn these initial ripples into waves. When the Tsunami of 2020 hit, like so many we were forced out of our element to "try something new." We shifted our platform and events to a virtual space. We quickly discovered we could collaborate with unique speakers from various cities and worked hard to build  better engagement with a broader audience.
