Accelerate Your Legacy
Woman entrepreneurs are routinely asked to serve on local community nonprofit boards. Since board service often requires both a time and financial commitment, the sheer volume of requests can be overwhelming! While we wholeheartedly endorse giving back to local communities, our experience suggests that most businesses fail to maximize their ROI for volunteer service.
Savvy business women consider how their company’s volunteer activities can not only help key employees feel good, but actually help their companies be better.
Volunteer service can be leveraged to deepen leadership capacities within each organization in ways that dramatically strengthen a company today, and lay the foundation for a more promising future for both the company and their community tomorrow.

Do you know what it feels like to be a rock star? I do!
I just returned from yet another amazing WBENC Summit & Salute. In fact, I feel this was most-definitely the best one ever, for a number of reasons.I was surrounded by amazing women, many who have already become dear friends, and many new connections who I am sure will also have a special place in my life. The camaraderie among these women lifts me up and makes me proud to be a woman-owned business. I have been in situations where that wasn’t always the case, and yet, I know that when I participate in a WBENC event, I can say it is a “sure thing” that I will be inspired and motivated to become a better person and share what I can with others.
