What is WOVEN?
The Women of Vision Enterprise Network is a conglomerate of professional women who are searching for more from our careers, and are seeking deeper connections with like-minded women as a way to build both personal and professional relationships. Founded in January 2016, we are a group of women from many diverse background and professions, who own or manage a small business—or are interested in starting a business.
What is WOVEN’s Purpose?
Experience and expertise. Since women entrepreneurs are responsible for all facets of the business and often work alone, they may lack daily access to colleagues with expertise and experience in such areas of business as sales, marketing, finance, strategic planning, and more. WOVEN provides a forum for interaction with other businesswomen who can offer diverse perspectives on business management and growth.
Education. Monthly discussion topics include financial planning, goal-setting, stress management, organization skills, presentation techniques, marketing strategies, health issues, and more. Presentations may be given by a WOVEN member or a guest facilitator.
Networking. In addition to establishing a sense of collegiality, networking provides opportunities to exchange information, share advice, offer inspiration, and expand business possibilities.
Support. WOVEN combats the natural isolation of managing a small business by providing both personal support and professional development. WOVEN members understand the challenge of balancing work and family responsibilities, whether the challenge involves balancing the two simultaneously, re-entering the work force after children are grown, or moving from working for others to entrepreneurship.
