We pursue partnership and engagement platforms to support business owners and share our members’ stories with the world.
EO’s second annual EmpowHer series will celebrate women throughout March, Women’s History Month, when the world calls attention to the contributions and achievements of women everywhere. EmpowHER will invite women entrepreneurs of any nation, industry, and business size to hear inspiring stories from fellow founders who have built successful companies and grown within a community of other entrepreneurs. Three one-hour sessions will be presented over three consecutive weeks, giving women the opportunity to hear from experts how to navigate three key pillars of every entrepreneur’s life: BUSINESS, FAMILY, and SELF.

In 2007, Randi had a front row seat to the launch of the iPhone in Silicon Valley and the necessity for every single business to immediately pivot or go extinct. She helped lead her team at Facebook successfully through that massive shift in consumer behavior, launching new products and programs that are now used by more than a billion people around the globe. She is here now, with over a decade of hindsight and analysis, to help guide you through these current tumultuous times. It has become clear that consumer behavior has again shifted abruptly, and meaningfully, creating an opportunity for businesses willing to take the leap. During this program, Randi will take you through some of the most substantial shifts in consumer behavior expected to happen over the next 12-18 months, and how to get ahead of them, rather than be caught off guard.

“Before joining EO, I searched for years to find a group of peers who understood my life experiences. All of my friends and family were employees of companies. They just didn’t share the same worries that kept me up at night. Since joining EO, I’ve found my tribe. People who know what it’s like to be on the roller coaster of business ownership.”
