Notas do Editor

  • Do you capitalize races? “Most significant growth is in Black and Latina populations. (Don’t forget the s in populations). Change WOBs to WBOs in fourth circle. Also in this circle, you capitalize a lot of words, I think “Only” should be the only word capitalized

  • Not a “woman thing” but a Phoenix thing
    Everyone wins when we give women the support they need to succeed
    Women start businesses at 3x the rate of men
    Challenges with staying focused and creating tools that move things forward “no meetings for the sake of meetings”
    Breaking through the expectation of “another networking group”
    Developing a brand, language, mission statement and tone that was positive, unique and inclusive.
  • We had to learn to agree on challenges, supported by research and national models to help organize the are ideas and develop a common language. Challenge of having so many different people from different area (business owners, economic developers, non-profit leaderS)
  • Research has shown that women business are different! They have different values. They face common challenges but have to overcome them differently. We had to develop a common understanding of how these difference and strengthen our own understanding using a different model. It helps us give effective refferals to each other and articulate the difference between resources.
