2019 Keynote Speaker

dominique dawes

Dominique Dawes is an Olympic Gold Medalist, three-time Olympian, brand ambassador and motivational speaker. She is the only American gymnast to medal at three different Olympic Games in the team competition and the first African-American gymnast to win an Olympic Gold medal. Dominique paved the way for other young African-American gymnasts to strive for Olympic glory, including 2012 Olympic All-Around Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas. At the 1996 Atlanta Games, Dominique became the first female African-American gymnast to win an individual medal, capturing bronze with her floor exercise performance, helping solidify her place in the USOC Hall of Fame.



The Memphis Women’s Summit will feature local female visionaries and leaders who’ll share their expertise on a wide range of subjects — all focused on galvanizing women to elevate Memphis.
