Welcome to Women Speakers Association Pittsburgh PA

Inspiring Women to be Seen and Heard

Message from Anita Russell

To SOAR is to grow fearlessly with vision, purpose and action. It is to Step Out and Redesign YOU.

Greetings from the Place to SOAR! I am the Principal at The Place to SOAR, a social enterprise dedicated to cultivating change through daily growth and personal development for the purpose of unleashing human potential. I built my business on three well-defined pillars.

 (1) Communicate and Connect.
This pillar represents the coaching arm of the Place to SOAR, specifically the SOAR Coaching Academy.  I treasure the client-coach relationship—building rapport based on deep communication and connection.

(2) Connect and Collaborate.
I am honored to serve as the Global Business Connector in Pittsburgh PA for Women Speakers Association. My mission is to build a central hub where connecting and collaborating is a mutual benefit; where we turn obstacles into opportunities and potential into kinetic action.

(3) Collaborate and Engage.
I also serve as the Northeast Region Lead for the U.S. Coalition of Black Women Businesses. The coalition emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. USCBWB exists to activate change, reinforce advocacy and facilitate support through seven key outcomes: empower, promote, connect, educate, support, guide, and influence.


The GBC Pittsburgh Community

Women Speakers Association created an experience where members can gather locally and benefit from the greater global community.

The Global Business Connector is an offshoot of the Women Speakers Association (WSA). WSA is the go-to place for innovative leaders, change-agents and women with a message to connect, collaborate and grow their visibility worldwide in order to fulfill their mission. The vision of WSA aligns well with my mission for The Place to SOAR—to assist women to become who they aspire to be by examining who they are and growing from within to live their best business and personal life. 

I took on the role of GBC in my home city and created this community as a central hub for local WSA Members to nurture, grow and empower women in business, nonprofit and ministry to intentionally connect and collaborate to build community, inspire change, and give back.

The GBC-Pittsburgh Community hosts multiple events, such as connect and collaborate mini-mastermind sessions, events and experts series, and more. Members of this community represent the GBC Pittsburgh Leadership Team, inspiring women to be seen and heard.
