It’s that time of year again for the Women in Business Holiday Basket Auction! This auction is a fantastic opportunity for you to promote your business while also giving back to the community you live in. With this auction the Women in Business donate the money raised towards the Vicki Decker Scholarship, for local individuals pursuing their education in Business.

We are looking for donations of baskets from you, our members, and supporters. We would like to see the baskets retail value to be at $25 and we encourage you to insert a business card within the basket. So, why not spread some holiday cheer while supporting Women In Business?

Please email if you are interested in donating a Holiday Basket. The deadline for baskets will be November 3rd. The auction will be live November 13th – November 20th. Thank you in advance for your donation and support of Women in Business!

Creating a Culture of Recognition in the Digital Age

Think about all the achievements you’ve earned in your lifetime: graduating from high school, college, joining a professional association, promotions, recognitions, and awards. Where are those achievements displayed? On your office wall? Tucked in a file drawer? There’s a better way to share those achievements: Digital Credentials.

For employees, Digital Badging is transforming the way credentials are professionally communicated and understood. For employers, Digital Credentials save organizations money on marketing, human resources, and recruiting costs, which has an impact on the bottom line.

Register TODAY to explore how Digital Credentials support your professional growth.

August Luncheon Update

Women in Business had so much fun today at the luncheon with Carolyn Colleen. Very inspiring lesson and activity!
Great questions to get in the habit of asking yourself and your team – “What are you celebrating” and “What are you excited about?”
the responses are different than “how are you doing?”
We hope you join us next month for Business Professional Growth with Julie Kiehne!
