Chamber staff launched the Women’s Business E-nitiative program in 2014 to engage, enrich and empower local women in business. Over the past 10 years, we’ve hosted a variety of events that have provided women with invaluable opportunities to network, learn and develop themselves professionally.
WBe events include speakers with demonstrated excellence in their fields and provide a valuable opportunity for guests to network and expand their business awareness.
Event details coming soon!
The WBe is proud to partner with The Salvation Army to support Free the Girls, an international non-profit organization devoted to helping survivors of sex trafficking answer the question of “What next?”
Every WBe event is an opportunity for you to donate new and gently used bras, sports bras, camisoles, bralettes and maternity/nursing bras to the cause.
Free the Girls’ Bra-Selling Initiative began from a recognition that trafficking survivors need a dignified way to make money while transitioning from exploitation to the rest of their lives. The second-hand clothing market in the developing world is a thriving sector, and though it’s not a perfect system, it does prevent clothing in the landfill and, most importantly, gives a woman the opportunity to run her own business.
A t-shirt will be given to all those who donate.
