A little about We Rise To Inspire
Michelle Wong started We Rise To Inspire about a year ago. The concept was to advocate more for women who are now on the rise in terms of their professional careers. Wong wanted to build a community for these women. She wanted to create a platform with mentorship availability for women who are looking to expand their careers. Wong has an event coming up March 28 and 29 of 2019.
Tell us a little about your expansive resume
Wong refers to herself as a jill-of-all-trades. She is in the real estate industry. New York City in particular is a very iconic place. Most people that come here to chase the American Dream — to see how they can make it.
Tell us about your upcoming event
It is a cross-industry event with people from the corporate world to the entertainment industry and all industries in-between. They are welcoming everyone. And although it is a women’s event, men came last year, and they are being welcomed back for the coming year. The difference between this year and last year is that this year there will be a workshop that talks about the fundamentals of funding a business. There will also be a session for getting minority- and women-owned businesses enterprise-certified, which is a huge deal if you want to be a vendor for federal contracts.
