EMPOWERED WOMEN EMPOWER WOMEN

The mission of R.O.A.R. is to strengthen professional and entrepreneurial women and accelerate their paths through networking. We facilitate you as you form (and grow) mutually beneficial professional relationships with likeminded businesswomen.

We believe…

01.

SUCCESS DOES
NOT OCCUR IN ISOLATION.

Our businesses can’t exist without clients, colleagues, vendors and employees. We need the right people in our corner.

02.

THERE’S NO MAGIC 8-BALL TO
TELL PEOPLE WHAT YOU WANT.

We must advocate for ourselves, be explicit in our communications to achieve our goals, and be receptive to others’ needs as well.

03.

THERE’S ROOM AT THE TOP.
AN ABUNDANCE MINDSET IS KEY.

Professional women achieve more together when we support one another. We can use influence to help each other.
