Something that we really celebrate here at MIC—besides our conference’s powerhouse speakers, phenomenal networking events, and beyond-amazing venues—is our community’s diversity.

Veterans. Service members. COs. CEOs. Military spouses. At MIC, we’ve seen it all. (In a good way.)

With diversity in experiences and backgrounds comes diversity in needs. Which is why we’re excited to announce the creation of Empower, a separate track within MIC that serves one of the most populous and engaged groups in our community: the military spouse.

In partnership with The Rosie NetworkEmpower will feature keynotes and breakout sessions led by some of the most inspiring military spouses. Conversations in this track will address the concerns unique to military spouse entrepreneurship, exploring topics like taking advantage of remote working hacks, building passive income, and achieving that elusive work-life balance. Our sponsored sessions will be hosted by some of the biggest brands in the world—Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, for starters—brands that understand the importance of supporting military spouses.

And you won’t want to miss the extraordinary director of The Rosie Network, Flossie Hall, who will be participating in a panel discussion about unapologetically being a military spouse. 

What’s even more satisfying about the Empower track is that military spouses in attendance will have access to all of the traditional MIC offerings…plus the spouse-focused content in Empower, meaning you can glean exactly what you need from MIC and more.
