About Us


Our Mission

Women Leaders in Business (WLIB) stands for greatness in women.  We come together in the spirit of generosity, business leadership and friendships.  

We hold regular meetings, volunteer and donate as well as collaborate with each other in an effort to tackle women centered issues so we can promote personal and professional growth.

*  Business Support

*  Personal Support

*  Community Support


To offer business women in our community an amazing platform to connect, inspire and empower.



We meet twice a month as a group to learn, inspire, and be educated about matters that impact us both professionally and personally.  Our speakers are focused on subjects that range from aging parents to building and award winning team to leadership.  Our quarterly events allow us to give back to those non-profits that are focused on issues that affect women.  By coming together with colleagues, friends, and mentors, we can bring about awareness and have influence in the lives of others.  Each of us have unique gifts and talents.  The members of Women Leaders in Business have an opportunity to pursue a great purpose.

The possibilities are endless and the journey begins with us...
