Empowering Women as Leaders through education, networking and mentoring. 

Wednesday, February 1st 

12:00pm - 2:00pm

Virtual Workshop - Zoom 

Join us for our first Women’s Wednesday of the new year - How To PR Yourself! 

As an entrepreneur, you will need to know how to promote yourself. Knowing who you are, what you have to offer, and understanding how to communicate those two things effectively will help you actively market yourself to others. Self-promotion can be just as critical to your success as the products and services you sell.
