Our Passion

“At the end of the day, when you are galvanizing people who are following what they are called to do, when they are living a life of purpose, that is great for business! Why? Because these are people who are going to bust through walls to make anything happen and that’s good for your top line and that’s good for your bottom line.”



The Purpose of the Roundtable

Open to women and men, the Women’s CEO Roundtable is gathering of global CEO’s and leaders who come together in shared fellowship to address business issues facing the world today. The CEO Roundtable is by invitation only and is part of The Religious Freedom & Business Foundation (RFBF). For more information, email us!

The Impact of the Roundtable

The focus of the CEO Roundtable is to create a space where leaders can discuss issues facing the world today, and together, ask and discuss questions to help better our global community.

At times, The CEO Roundtable will choose to attend global events that have been identified as those that we feel the presence of the Roundtable will help inform decisions being made around global issues.
