Hear and learn from powerful and influential female leaders of the business community. Guest speakers are of diverse backgrounds, from various companies and industries. They offer advice, lessons learned, and Q&A sessions.
Our goal is to cultivate a sense of community locally by promoting equal opportunity and fairness. We achieve this by participating in and supporting programs here in Seattle which align with this ideal.
To address challenges that women face in business, instructive seminars and workshops are led by experts and professionals on relevant topics such as personal finance, business etiquette, dressing to impress, and negotiation.
