So by joining as a member you are supporting our organisation to connect, celebrate and advocate for Women in Business & Regional Development.
The WiBRD values of authenticity, advocacy, leadership & growth, relationships & collaboration, fun & balance shape everything we do as a network.
From encouraging small business owners, career professionals, up and coming business women and entrepreneurs to join our network and attend our events to build skills whether that be through our mentoring programs, training, supporting each other in business networking events or simply by listening to the inspiring stories of other great business women in and out of our region.
Women in Business and Regional Development are about celebrating and acknowledging the women in our community; their achievements, their continuing ability to improve themselves, and their contribution not just to the business community but to the wider community as well. This is achieved through a number of WiBRD programs such as the Influential Women in Business Awards, Business Booster and Entrepreneurial Scholarships and the WiBRD Hall of Fame.
As a non-for-profit organisation and in the absence of any current funding or grants, the support from partnership and membership enable the network to operate at a sustainable level. WiBRD is operated by a voluntary Board and an Executive Officer on part time service contract.
