I’ve had the honor of chairing the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce Women in Business for the last two years. It has been our mission to provide programs and opportunities in leadership, development, education and networking for women in the business community. This group of women also focuses throughout the year on raising and collecting funds for the Women in Business Scholarship. The purpose of the scholarship is to aid the advancement of local woman into the business world.

We were looking for a way to provide programs and opportunities in leadership, development and education as well as networking with new business in our community and creating lasting friendships. As our women’s group grew, so did the opportunities.
