New Women's CEO Roundtable Peer Mentorship Program to Launch 2019

The Western Dairyland Women's Business Center recently received $6000 from the Women's Giving Circle to launch a peer mentorship program for women seeking to grow their existing businesses. According to the 2018 State of Women Owned Businesses Report, 4 out of every 10 businesses (40%) in the United States are now women-owned. However, these businesses only employ 8% of the total private sector workforce and contribute just 4.3% of total revenues. In response to this discrepancy, The Western Dairyland Women's Business Center is launching a new program called Women's CEO Roundtables.

Women's CEO Roundtables are for women who have grown their business beyond startup and want to scale larger. Many business owners can only get so far through hard work and determination. To continue to grow their company profitably, they need some outside help.

Women’s CEO Roundtables follow the Edward Lowe PeerSpectivesSM Program by gathering business leaders from noncompeting industries so that participants may tap their collective wisdom. Led by Kelly Berry MBA, a certified professional facilitator, these monthly sessions are fast-paced and productive, giving you actionable solutions for your challenges. What’s more, the sessions include informal discussions with business experts in a variety of fields, from finance and accounting to HR and marketing.

Participants say the roundtables are well worth their time away from the office, helping them avoid pitfalls and costly mistakes — and identify new opportunities. In a nutshell, Women’s CEO Roundtables will help you run your business with better results, less stress and more confidence.
