Woman in Business, Inc. (WIB) was founded in 1985 by Judith A. Jaeger, (Founder/President Emeritus), to support women and provide a network of sharing business experiences, knowledge, and ventures.
Woman In Business Inc., is a 501c(3) charitable organization (#04-2947253). We are governed by a volunteer board of directors, that support women by fostering networking, sharing information and experiences, and providing educational opportunities.
While our membership consists primarily of women in the workforce in the south central MA area, women (and men) are welcome to join our organization, regardless of their employment status, or residence.
We hold monthly luncheon programs attracting speakers from near and far. Monthly meeting meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month. Our website, Facebook Page, and newsletter provide complete information on these meetings. On each of these venues, we list the date, place, time, and speakers. Our meetings incorporate a comfortable blend of socializing and networking.
We also offer workshops, seminars, and other learning opportunities at different times, throughout the year. We provide annual scholarships to students graduating from Tantasqua Regional High School, Shepherd Hill Regional High School, Southbridge Middle/High School, Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School and to an adult woman entering into Bay Path University’s One-Day-A-Week Saturday program.
