In 1980, a group of trail-blazing professionals developed the idea for a membership group where women could come together for education, to share ideas, to network and to support each other in their career development. Wilmington Women in Business (WWB) has been responsible for so many professional and personal connections, educational opportunities, and special moments through the last 37 years!
In 1980 when WWB first started, the organization played an essential role as women did not have a forum for networking in the corporate world. Today, many large companies have networking groups specifically for women and industry specific groups exist everywhere you turn. Our work isn't done but the landscape has changed and now it is time to pass the torch to other groups to continue to help women soar...
WWB has made the difficult decision to close it's doors but we know it's not goodbye. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at the Fresh Start Scholarship Rising Stars signature event on September 28. We also look forward to networking at the New Castle County Chamber's Entrepreneurial & Business Women's Expo, the Great Dames Powerful Conversation Series, and many more wonderful groups in our community. We encourage you to find one you love and get involved!
We owe YOU, our longtime members and supporters a huge thank you! Thanks to you, we have donated tremendous resources to the Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation who is the charitable arm of Wilmington Women in Business, we have donated items to families in need through the Ministry of Caring, we have participated in Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition events to help women affected by breast cancer in our community, and so much more. We are in the process of donating excess funds to organizations that we have worked with through the years to continue to help women in our community.
Thank you for trusting us and supporting us throughout the years!
It's not a goodbye ... it's a see you later!
