Women’s Business Council (WBC)
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.
All genders are welcome at WBC events!
Our pitch line for our November program, Voices in the Crowd, is NOW OPEN! Our theme for this year’s Voices in the Crowd is “Breaking the Glass Ceiling.” We are sharing stories from people in our community who have “broken through” in their job, industry, or anywhere else they were the first to break through a barrier.
Submit Your Story! In preparation for our Voices in the Crowd event, we want to hear from you! Please share your story as it relates to this year’s theme and you could be chosen to be featured as a speaker at our event on November 9! Your story should be told from your heart, in a short concise manner, 2 minutes total. No cliffhangers please! Your story should in some way tie back to business in order to align with the true mission of the Women’s Business Council.
Everyone is welcome to share/pitch a story, not only those who identify as women.
Breaking the Glass Ceiling
Call our Voices in the Crowd Submission Portal at 518.313.6339.
Be prepared to share the following via voice message: Name, phone number, email address, your story – in a short, 2 minute pitch
Deadline for Submissions: June 18, 2021
