Linda McMahon to speak at Women’s History Month event

Greenwich resident Linda McMahon, co-founder and former CEO of WWE, will be the keynote speaker at a Women’s History Month event, Ladies Making History, on March 20 from 6 to 8 p.m.

At the event, which celebrates local entrepreneurs, Ms. McMahon will discuss the achievements and contributions of four women who have innovative ideas to grow their businesses. The Vince and Linda McMahon Family Foundation will award $4,000 in grants to these women at the event.

“I am thrilled to be a part of this effort to recognize the achievements of women working to make their businesses succeed,” Ms. McMahon said, in a press release. “Small businesses fuel our economy, and studies show women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. I am proud to honor these four entrepreneurs at this event.”

Ms. McMahon co-founded WWE with her husband and served as the company’s CEO. During her time at WWE, she helped grow the company from a modest, 13-person operation based in Greenwich to a publicly traded global enterprise with more than 700 employees in offices worldwide and main offices in Stamford.

The Ladies Making History event was developed and is co-sponsored by Ladies Who Launch of Southwestern Connecticut and Unleash Your Voice, two organizations whose goals are to empower women entrepreneurs and help them grow their businesses.

According to Allyson Spellman, CEO of Unleash Your Voice, the event hopes to “celebrate women who are currently making history by creating their own legacy through their business.”

The event will be held at Safavieh Home Furnishings, located at 230 Atlantic Street in Stamford. Seating will be limited.
