CWCC Peer Groups are designed to meet the specific needs for our different types of members. Each peer group has content and participants specific to where they are in business. These groups gather separately once a month to foster relationships, share authentically, and support one another’s personal and professional growth. Each month will have a different topic that supports the advancement of these groups. Peer groups are still included in membership and have no additional fee to participate in.
Our Solopreneur Forum is designed for small women owned businesses looking to grow their business knowledge, skills, and community. These businesses are under $1M in revenue and may or may not have a few employees.
