Woman Evolve—Featuring Brené Brown, Yvonne Orji – Showcases How Women are Powerhouse Economic Generators 

More than 40,000 attendees will descend upon Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, this week, Sept. 14 – 16, for the global women’s conference Woman Evolve, presented by Wells Fargo. Powered by Sarah Jakes Roberts’ authentic and dynamic voice, attendees will be led through areas of enrichment for women that include having courage, loving your body, mental health struggles, finances, a man’s perspective and ministry. The nearly sold-out event will include more than 1,600 volunteers hailing from Texas with attendees coming from all over including Australia, Netherlands, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

The fifth annual Woman Evolve conference showcases a growing trend in America: how women are leading the charge in economic impact. Woman Evolve is estimated to have an overall economic impact of more than $35 million in Arlington and the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The attendance and economic impact are on par with previous national touring events including concerts by Lady Gaga, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elton John, Morgan Wallen and The Stadium Tour (Joan Jett, Poison, Motley Crue, Def Leppard). Jakes Roberts’ Woman Evolve is the fastest selling women’s conference in the history of Globe Life Field.


Woman Evolve aims to help women feel more connected in every aspect of their lives including in mind and body. Ultimately, the movement and event will help women progress toward the lives they desire to live. Jakes Roberts is at the forefront of an intergenerational movement helping women from all socioeconomic backgrounds erase the limits put on women. Her goal for Woman Evolve is to create a space for women to learn and grow together.

“It’s not about what women can build on their own but going further together through Woman Evolve as opposed to doing this fast and alone,” said Jakes Roberts. “I believe the power of connection and community allow us to facilitate a chartering of new paths so that we can go forward deeper and together.” 

“Wells Fargo is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of Woman Evolve,” said Gigi Dixon, head of External Engagement in Diverse Segments, Representation, and Inclusion at Wells Fargo. “Women are leading in all facets of life—from their communities to corporate board rooms to their own businesses. Wells Fargo is committed to helping women increase their business acumen and access to capital as well as achieve financial success.”

Jakes Roberts is redefining what it means to be a modern woman of faith. As a wife, mother, author and businesswoman dedicated to honoring her father’s (T.D. Jakes) mission of empowering underrepresented communities—including the disappearing middle class—her messages have spread throughout the world defying cultural, religious, gender, and socio-economic boundaries. She has a unique way of reaching people who are seeking to make peace with their past, maximize their present and deepen their relationship with God.
