W2W Leadership Initiative’s August Updates
Updates on WILMA's Women to Watch Leadership Initiative
WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative has updates to share as we continue to work on the effort’s core mission of helping develop more women leaders in our area. Here’s what we’ve been up to with various W2W Leadership Initiative programs and what’s coming up next:
WILMA NETWORK: The WILMA Network is made up of sponsors of the Women to Watch Leadership Initiative, from small businesses to large companies in the region. The Network meets monthly during 2nd Tuesday gatherings to make connections, including this recent after-hours at Palate Bottle Shop and Garden on North Fourth (above) and lunch at the Oceanic Restaurant last month.
LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: WILMA’s Leadership Institute, a class of thirty-two selected women who meet for training and peer mentoring, discussed negotiation techniques last month with BristolGroup Business Brokers’ Regina Fisher. The session, held at UNCW’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, also included a lunch panel featuring several leaders from the university. This year’s class meets monthly through December.
