Women’s Business Council (WBC)

The mission of the Women’s Business Council is to cultivate an inclusive community that empowers, educates, and advances all women as leaders.

The Women’s Business Council promotes the full participation and leadership of women at all levels in the workplace, the community and government.

The WBC develops programs that provide opportunities for women to learn and network as well as share their expertise with each other and to address the unique issues of women in business.

WBC meetings throughout the year feature various business and educational topics and two annual signature events, including the Women of Excellence Awards Luncheon and the Bold in Business Forum.

All genders are welcome at WBC events!
