Dr. Trent’s new book, “The Awakened Woman,” inspired the theme for NAWBO OC’s 2018-19 term, We Are Here. As we endeavor to bring more and more women entrepreneurs to the table in Orange County, we are awed by women like Dr. Trent who quite literally built their own tables.
Dr. Trent speaks about dreams and the stories we tell ourselves, our communities, and the world. She guides us to reclaim our stories, re-examine our ambitions, and uncover the power in ourselves to re-create the world for the better. Please read more about Dr. Trent’s incredible journey below.
Dr. Trent will be signing copies of her book, “The Awakened Woman.” We will have copies for sale at the event. The meeting will also include networking, facilitated legislative policy discussions, and orientation for new members.
Space is limited, and the event is expected to sell out.
