Local women will share their stories of trials and successes in business to celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day on Nov. 19.

Women in business are invited to celebrate the Women in Business group’s one-year anniversary by connecting with others at an upcoming seminar. The group is hosted by the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Missouri S&T and the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

“We launched this group a year ago, and we want to bring everyone together to celebrate our one-year anniversary and talk about current trends with women in business,” says Karen Leatherman, business development specialist at Missouri S&T SBDC. “We will also have a group discussion about those trends and have the opportunity to share best practices and connect with others.”

Women in Business: Celebrate and Connect event will be held noon-1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, at Columbia College, 550 Blues Lake Parkway in Rolla. Reserve a spot online at celebrate-and-connect.eventbrite.com.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch. A complimentary dessert will be provided.

Although focused on women in business, anyone is welcome to attend. The Women in Business group provides access to business resources, training, networking and a forum to test out new ideas. Participants who are interested in upcoming group activities and events can join an email list by emailing women.in.business.missouri@gmail.com or joining the LinkedIn group called Women in Business-Missouri.
