Women’s Impact Inc. is a network of professional females who seek ways to advance women in our community, provide leadership opportunities for them and foster an atmosphere that leverages the unique capabilities and perspectives of women in the greater Stark County area!
The Women’s Impact Series, the precursor to today’s organization, began in 2009 aspiring to bring educational, enrichment and networking opportunities to the professionally-minded women in Stark County. Based on the success of the Series, we have grown into what is now Women’s Impact, Inc. with a focus on creating a vibrant atmosphere in which to connect professional women with training, networking and business opportunities and to work with other professional women's organizations to share best practices and seek collaboration when possible.
Programs scheduled for 2012-2013, include a full‐day professional development, the Athena Day Mentor/Mentee Luncheon, the Athena International® Leadership Awards and Fun on the 5th, casual networking events held on the 5th of each month.
Women have tremendous impact in our community. Purchasing power. Decision-making power. Leadership strength. Communities and corporations that embrace the unique perspectives and skill sets of women are stronger and better prepared for the future.
By connecting with a group of women from various professions, ethnicities and ages, local businesses and organizations gain resources and opportunities to strengthen your personal and professional path, which in turn strengthens our community as a whole.
The events we host are a valuable means to reach more women in our area and connect them with organizations where they can make a difference. Ultimately, by cultivating and equipping women in leadership, we will strengthen the economic, social service, philanthropic and civic sectors of our community.
We welcome your attendance at events, as well as your feedback on the type of programming we offer. We ask that you attend our upcoming sessions and invite other women who may benefit. Your professional insights are critical as this initiative begins to take shape.
