Defining Sisterhood with Gather & Shine


Welcome to a your new favorite space where genuine connections and endless opportunities to collaborate and ignite your inner leadership awaits a brilliant woman like you.

In a world where women are expected to constantly juggle roles and take care of everything and everyone around them, having a dedicate space that's meant just for you becomes a game-changer. 


It isn't a place for comparison or competition.

It's a safe space where small talk leads to fearless conversations that truly matter. Giving your an opportunity to peel back the layers of being a woman, sharing dreams and expressing concerns without the weight or fear of judgment. Here, your voice isn't just heard but felt and celebrated, creating a ripple effect of empowerment in your life and in the lives of everyone you touch. 


Here's How Gather & Shine Works

Since our first meeting in 2019 it has been Leslie’s’ unwavering aim to make a significant impact on women’s well-being. Leslie encourages women to fully embrace their wildest dreams, to work towards those goals while also being the realist - she won’t let you fall prey to those pesky fairytale wishes.


Hi, I'm¬†Leslie Fuqua Williams ‚ÄĒ

I believe that when women come together, incredible things happen.

My entire personal and professional life, I was fortunate to be surrounded by incredible women leaders who taught me the power of courage, confidence and grace. They were my mentors, colleagues and inspirations, guiding me through many pivotal moments.

These experiences instilled in me a deep understanding of the unique strengths women possess. I've seen firsthand how our blend of empathy, strategic thinking, and unwavering determination can lead to incredible outcomes and I believe that when women thrive, companies grow, families prosper and communities blossom.
