WBEC Pacific Launches Empower U: Women in Business Live Webinars
Keeping Business Networking Alive
Women’s Business Enterprise Council Pacific (WBEC Pacific) recently launched Empower U: Women in Business Live Webinars— a weekly series for women in business to meet in a friendly setting, talk about business, enhance their knowledge, and build community.
The meetings are held virtually, in response to social distancing and other public gathering guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19. The platform works as an alternative networking tool for WBEC Pacific’s business community of over 790 women-owned businesses and its corporate membership formed by Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.
Some of the Most Productive 60 Minutes You Can Get
Every week, a subject matter expert is invited to give a 30 to 45-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer portion. The agenda is kept simple and ample time is given for open discussion. Aside from staying informed with the hottest topics concerning small business, participants are able to virtually connect in a supportive environment.
By having the meeting on the same day, at the same time each week, WBEC Pacific hopes to create a virtual happy place—where participants can find support and inspiration during these uncertain times. One way to look at it is a place where people are coming to share, listen, teach and learn together—a great source of empowerment.
A New Weekly Habit
Empower U: Women in Business Live Webinars by WBEC Pacific are held every Wednesday, from 1:00 p.m. to 2/2:30 p.m. Pacific time. Registration is free. To view the weekly schedule and to register for upcoming sessions, visit the WBEC Pacific Empower U website here.
