1 program. 7 cities in 2017. 1,000 new GIRL BOSSES.
7-City Bus Tour Thank You 2017-08-16T12:28:20+00:00

In 2016, the idea of the 7-City Bus Tour was just that. An idea.

In 2017, thanks to the support, the time and the generosity of so many people, the first ever Envision Lead Grow cross-country tour was an overwhelming success.

We are so thankful for the people, the businesses and the organizations that helped to make this possible.

Thank you!
