It is with great honor that I accepted the role of 2018-2019 NAWBO Phoenix President.
I’m excited to lead our chapter into a great year as we align with the NAWBO mission: “Strengthen the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promote economic development; create innovative and effective changes in the business culture; build strategic alliances, coalitions, and affiliations; and transform public policy and influence opinion makers.”
I’m looking forward to leading this chapter to be the “talk of the town.” If you are a woman business owner, this is the one organization to which you will be proud to belong.
As we look at our next year, we are striving to increase our membership and corporate partners’ support. In order to achieve these goals, we are listening and researching what our members would like to hear and learn. We will bring the programs that will support every group of women business owners.
Programs will support established women business owners as well as the new businesses that are relocating to the Phoenix area. The young professionals who are starting their dreams will be the future leaders of this organization and therefore we must reach out now to help the next generation of successful women CEOs take advantage of our experience and use it as a base on which to build.
Our monthly luncheons are held on the second Wednesday of the month at Gainey Ranch Golf Club. There, you will be able to meet many amazing women (and some men) with whom you will be able to connect and collaborate. You will be inspired and learn from our speakers or a panel discussion on subjects that are important to you and your business and will support your goals and vision.
In addition to that we have:
- An award-winning mentoring program that has a proven high level of success and increased ROI
- Rise up program — to learn about diversity in the workforce
- Public Policy/Advocacy Day — to learn how to get involved and make a difference
I encourage you take a moment to think about how important it is to empower women entrepreneurs for economic, social and political growth. Join us as we continue to create a safe place for women to strengthen their ability to grow individually and within their communities.
