Power of the Purse: Celebrating Women Doing Business Breakfast March 6, 2015

Co-hosted by our Latina Business Enterprises Group this event is all about celebrating women in business. Arizona’s Women-Owned Business Enterprises (WBEs) are part of a vibrant, ongoing demographic and economic transformation occurring across the Southwest and nationwide. According to our study on WBEs released in 2013, women business owners were twice as likely to have a college degree and had 50% higher annual income compared to the state’s median household. This is a chance to get informed while highlighting some of the amazing work and contributions being brought to our communities by women across our state.
