“The proverbial glass ceiling for women is slowly cracking in Alabama. For over a dozen years the Momentum Leadership Program has prepared hundreds of women to successfully assume high profile leadership roles in a wide array of industries and professions. Its impact in central Alabama is evident in the senior executive positions held by its alums. Momentum offers incontrovertible proof that when afforded the chance women demonstrate skillful and effective leadership in any occupation.”  Odessa Woolfolk – Educator, Civic Activist

“I hope to see you at this powerhouse Conference where excellence is the key to success, enabling you to achieve your full potential on a personal and professional level.

“Before attending the Momentum conference in 2014, I was not sure it would be the right fit for my company’s sponsorship. I knew there were a large number of women at Daxko who’d be interested in attending, so I decided to purchase two tables and reward our stars with the opportunity to attend the conference. That was a huge hit. After experiencing the conference in 2014, signing up for a sponsorship and a table at the 2016 conference was an easy decision.”  – April Benetollo, Daxko
