Founded five years ago by Sheila Robinson, the Diversity Women’s Business Conference continues to grow as a professional networking force for diverse women. “We have the opportunity to develop and build lasting relationships that can and will bridge the leadership gaps,” said Robinson in regards to working alongside Wells Fargo & Company to host the Diversity Women’s Business Conference.
