Women’s Power Networking Launches First Virtual Chapter on Zoom Meeting Platform
Inspired by the June International Women’s Forum in Salt Lake City, co-founder of Women’s Power Networking Marilyn Shannon with members Autonnette McLaughlin and Heidi Mazur set about finding a way for women to network virtually.
It’s no surprise that the WPN women’s organization is based in Raleigh, NC with the state seeing the third fastest growth in women–owned firms up 91% (American Express OPEN Report). The organization with 20+ chapters in North Carolina and 35+ chapters across three states, empowers women personally and professionally.
The State of Women-Owned Businesses, 2013 report by American Express OPEN also found that the rate of growth in the number of women-owned enterprises over the past 16 years is growing at 1½ times the national average. http://www.womenable.com/
Marilyn Shannon shares Ariel Briggs’ belief that, “with international business increasing among women, learning to navigate different cultures has become a key matter of concern.” Briggs is the STEP Program Coordinator at the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development.
The virtual chapter is part of Women’s Power Networking initiative to provide networking innovation to women in business globally. The ability to see the entire team during the virtual meeting enables building genuine relationships.
Some of the benefits of joining WPN Virtual include the ability to:
• build your company’s brand recognition
• make referrals, connections and introductions with business owners globally
• connect to the virtual platform via videoconferencing, tablet, computer or mobile devices
