With this insight and experience, Ms. Knight created WEC to empower professional women across the nation and beyond.

Accelerating Women’s Careers: How Passion, Purpose, and Planning are Changing Lives

Deborah Knight had built a career as a high-achieving professional in both law and the financial services industry. However, throughout her career, she recognized that for someone in her position, it was harder to find the resources, development, and connections she needed to accelerate her career. Ms. Knight realized that women in executive, leadership, or entrepreneurial positions have different needs for professional development and work-life balance support. In response, Ms. Knight launched Women’s Executive Club in 2014. This organization offers professional women in executive positions and entrepreneurship access to the right connections, resources, and development to accelerate their careers.
