BOULDER - The Women's Council WILD Summit set for Feb. 1 is close to selling out in its inaugural year, organizers of the event announced.

The Women Inspiring Leadership Development (WILD) Summit aims to bring together students and inspiring leaders at all stages of their careers to share experiences, knowledge and passions.

More than 350 Front Range leaders are expected to attend the all-day event, examining trends driving future business opportunities and discovering how women are influencing change.

The Women's Council is an outgrowth of the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship at CU's Leeds School of Business. The council said it has secured financing for the WILD Summit from more than 30 organizations.

"The Women's Council has been a vibrant lifeline for me as I've navigated the sometimes stormy and often solitary waters of entrepreneurship," said Mary Huron Hunter, principal and founder of N8 Communications.

"The women I've met, the connections I've made and the work I've done have inspired me to stretch, open and recommit myself to my path over and over again."

A list of the major supporters of the WILD Summit is available on the Women's Council website at http://cudemingcenterwomenscouncil.org/index.html.

"It is so gratifying to see the amount of support we have receive from organizations around the Front Range," said Cindy Carrillo, summit event chair and former chair of the Women's Council.

"It clearly demonstrates the need for an event such as this that helps foster growth, development, learning and sharing among women across all industries and levels of experience."
