Women's Business Network
The Chamber SWLA kicked off its Women's Business Network with a luncheon in April 2010. Over 100 women attended the premiere event and have continued their support of the program bringing friends and co-workers to the informal luncheons since.
"This group was formulated to address the issues and benefits of being a woman in business in Southwest Louisiana. Women often have to juggle their jobs, homes and families, and yet are becoming entrepreneurs, working in previously male-oriented industries and taking over leadership positions across all industry sectors. Our goal with the Women's Business Network is to provide educational, networking and mentoring resources to women in business across the five parish region of Southwest Louisiana,” said Michelle McInnis, WBN Liaison & Alliance Regional & Workforce Development Coordinator.
The Women's Business Network is a non-membership based group spanning all industries and communities, sharing common interests and goals. At each meeting, a member of the group shares information about their industry or specialty and then we are treated to a speaker on a topic relevant to being a woman in business.
