Meet the 2018 WIM Sponsors
Our 2018 WIM Festival was so much more than we could have ever asked for. We laughed, listened, cried, and danced the weekend away in unity and sisterhood. We're feeling beyond inspired by both the womxn who came out to share their gems, and all the ladies that attended each event and brought life to the festival. Above all, we're thankful to all our sponsors, who without their belief and support, could not have made the festival happen. Please get to know our 2018 sponsors below!
