In the spring of 2018, I was invited to a chapter lunch and learn program by a business colleague and friend who was on the board and a sponsor of the local chapter. I just started my business and was looking for networking opportunities. I received much more during that luncheon. I found a phenomenal cadre of women who supported and celebrated each other in business and personally. All welcomed me and treated me like a long-lost friend. That is meaningful and immensely powerful. My choice to join came after one more lunch and learn program; where, my interest continued to grow as I learned about the advocacy effort and successes of this non-profit for women in business. This is a smart, powerful, and strong organization that any woman in business should join.
