Inspire. Empower. Mentor.
The Women's Business Network of Michigan is committed to enhancing the personal and professional growth of its members and event attendees and is dedicated to making a positive impact on our surrounding communities. We seek to support one another professionally through networking, education, inspirational speakers and the sharing of stories. Our membership is comprised of female corporate executives, junior and senior professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, artists and women who want to connect with other dynamic women. Membership is open to women from all industries in various stages of their careers who want to develop a strong lifelong network.
Every year we discuss a year-long theme, and our theme for the 2016-2017 year was AUTHENTICITY. This was a year-long conference that inspired everyone!
We meet on the third Wednesday of most months from 11:30a – 1:30p. Meetings take place at the beautiful Oak Pointe Country Club, unless specified otherwise. Our luncheons are more than “business card swaps”. They encourage everyone at the table to interact and connect with one another on a personal as well as professional level. You will meet potential clients, colleagues, employers, customers and friends each month we gather. Our format makes networking with new professional peers as rewarding as lunching with close friends. We feature guest speakers who are highly accomplished women and are there to share stories of success and challenges. We are about women supporting women…
Since our beginning in 2014, we are proud to have established several significant events and programs:
- February - Livingston County Goes Red for Women, an annual partnership with St. Joseph Mercy Health System and the American Heart Association to raise awareness about women’s heart health
- November - Holiday Nonprofit Focused Luncheon
- May – Women in Leadership Forum Finale
- Young Leaders of Influence Program & Scholarships
- +influence after-school club at Brighton High School
This is just one of the many benefits of being a member of the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce! If you have any questions, please contact Catherine Shinsky at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jen Ling at email@example.com we would love to talk to you!
The Young Leaders of Influence is a partnership between Brighton High School, the Women's Business Network of Michigan, and the Greater Brighton Area Chamber of Commerce. We award one female student monthly for exhibiting exceptional leadership skills among her peers.
Also, we have a monthly high school club called +influence, where girls who are interested in developing, fine tuning, or utilizing leadership skills are encouraged and exhorted to explore areas in the community and in their lives they can utilize valuable information learned in the club.
