What Is WE?
Encourage. Engage. Educate. This is the mission of Women Empowered (WE), an annual event hosted by the Southlake Chamber of Commerce. This dynamic forum brings together women from throughout North Texas to network, learn, support each other, give back, and get involved.
The inaugural Women Empowered luncheon, held April 28, 2016, was sold out and featured an insightful panel of “leading ladies in local politics,” including a Texas state senator and mayors from cities in the DFW area. It was truly a magical event and exceeded all of the sponsorship, attendance and fundraising goals!

WE 2017: GO FOR THE GOLD
The Southlake Chamber, WE Committee and Slim4Life are proud to present the 2nd Annual Women Empowered luncheon! Leading this year’s event is our Mistress of Ceremonies, Celena Rae, a former American Idol contestant and current National Anthemist for the Dallas Stars.
It promises to be a fabulous line-up of exclusive silent auction items, a diamond pendant raffle, mimosas, four-course meal, and lots of surprises! A portion of event proceeds will be donated to Grapevine Relief And Community Exchange (GRACE) for a scholarship to be awarded to a victim of domestic violence.
The 2017 Women Empowered theme is “GO FOR THE GOLD” in honor of our amazing guest speakers:
Leta Andrews, the winningest high school basketball coach in the nation, will share her story of victory on the court, while also being a successful teacher and raising a family, proving that women really can do it all.
Amy Acuff competed for the United States in the high jump on five Olympic teams, spanning 1996 to 2012. Now mother of two, Amy founded a technology company aimed at improving training methodology using mobile software solutions. Amy proves that women can be successful on and off the field.
It's not a party without diamonds! Which is why there will be a raffle for a fabulous piece of jewelry, once again donated by Grayson Allen Fine Jewelers in Southlake. One lucky winner will leave with a 14kt white gold cluster pendant set with .75 carat of diamonds set on a 16-18' chain. Retail value: $2650.00. Raffle tickets are $25 each or five for $100 - click here to purchase tickets online and they will also be for sale at the event.
