Women In Business, a not-for-profit organization, has existed for almost 30 years! We are one of the only organizations in Winona that recognizes and supports women in a variety of professions.
Every month, our organization gathers around tables to network with other businesswomen while enjoying a great lunch and listening to a speaker that promotes personal and professional business growth. In one short hour, women working in a variety of industries connect to build long lasting relationships that will grow home-based and corporate business, and benefit family life and ultimately, the Winona community.
Women in Business luncheons are held on the third Thursday of the month, during the noon hour with a key-note speaker
“Everyone has inside of her a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be, how much you can love, what you can accomplish, and what your potential is.”
“I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.”
“The best success stories are the ones we create, not those that fall into our laps, and women working alongside women, partnering with women-run businesses, is a success story that will have a ripple effect.”
