MELBOURNE, FLA. —The Florida Institute of Technology Women’s Business Center (WBC) will host “A Gathering of Interesting Women” Sept. 13, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
The gathering offers women the opportunity to meet and network with other women in the area’s business community through WBC’s Networking for Women program. This is not a speed networking event.
The goal of the network is to guide and support women in building relationships and advancing their careers. Those who plan to attend are strongly encouraged to reach out beyond their normal network and invite at least one other “interesting” woman.
“The event promises to be inspirational, informative and fun,” said Donn Miller-Kermani, director, Women’s Business Center.
Sue Murphy, human resources consultant and business coach, participated in a previous “Gathering” and wrote:
“As a new resident to the Melbourne area, I so appreciate the warm welcome from you and your team and the information I have received at WBC events. One of the first events I attended was the ‘Gathering of Interesting Women’ networking event on March 8, 2010. Our networking table of diverse women became fast friends! We now call ourselves the “IW” group and have continued to meet monthly sharing both business and personal challenges and successes. Thank you for making it possible for me to meet such a dynamic group of women!”
Networking for Women is also sponsored by the Florida Small Business Development Center at Brevard Community College and the Melbourne Regional Chamber of East Central Florida Women of Excellence Initiative.
The event will be held at the Denius Student Center’s Hartley Room and the cost is $6. For more information and to R.S.V.P. for you and your guest, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or register online at wbc.fit.edu.
