About Us

“Us” is so much more than the folks here at the Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC). We’re really talking about some of the most amazing women in the retail space — special, electric, powerful, innovative, successful are all words that come to mind to describe the women of WIRLC.

Our goal is to bring together these awe-inspiring women within WIRLC and provide a unique networking group that offers enterprise-level women in the retail industry a place to LEARN, CONNECT and GROW through virtual and live events, a weekly e-newsletter, an information-packed website, social media, and more. WIRLC strives to continuously offer members the opportunity to SHARE best practices, discuss industry issues and find inspiration on how to conquer challenges in their professional lives.

And we’re just getting started — just wait to see what’s around the corner!

Here’s what keeps me up at night: I imagine waking up one morning to find that the country has moved on. That the media has stopped reporting on systemic inequalities. That diversity remains something companies talk about instead of prioritizing. That all of this energy and attention has amounted to a temporary swell instead of a sea change. There's too much at stake to allow that to happen. Too many people — women and men — have worked too hard to get us this far. And there are too many possible solutions we haven’t tried yet."-- Melinda Gates, Co-Chair; Founder, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Pivotal Ventures, Time, Oct 02
