A Decade of Dynamic Women
An exciting addition to our 2019 conference is our Decade of Dynamic Women Dinner celebrating our 10th anniversary. The event will highlight 10 members of our tribe who have been instrumental in the growth of Working Women of Tampa Bay. They’ve helped WWOTB become more than a simple networking organization but an avenue where meaningful connections are forged and women lift each other up—often in life-changing ways.
Proceeds from the dinner will directly benefit the Working Women Foundation. The organization’s mission is to provide mentoring opportunities and awards of $500 to $1,000 to women entrepreneurs. These seed money grants may seem modest, but they’ve led to tremendous growth on the part of their recipients.
Kali Rabaut of Suncoast Compost, which offers curbside composting as well as event support, tells us:
The seed money grant was an incredible help. We were able to purchase five portable waste stations, and our events just love them. Because these stations can fold up to fit in the back of the car, I am able to let a team member transport the bins. This has freed up my time and allowed me to grow my business. I can’t thank the Working Women Foundation enough.”
And Lisbeth Pacheco with Ethos Roasters, a craft roaster of Fair-Trade Organic beans, says:
The grant helped us build up our inventory and display for the 2017 Tampa Bay Holiday Gift Market by the Junior League. Our business grew 300% after that event! And we now just bought a second roaster. Thank you so much, Working Women!”
We hope you’ll consider attending or sponsoring the dinner to celebrate 10 years of connections and collaborations. By working together, we can continue our efforts to educate, motivate and inspire female entrepreneurs in Tampa Bay to achieve their goals so that they can become women, like you, who lift others to success.
