We’re online, are you? In case you missed it, the WBDC has progressed by leaps and bounds in the last 2 years with the introduction of webinars, online surveys, social media and most recently a refreshed website. All of these initiatives work to continue furthering the WBDC mission to “…accelerate women’s business ownership and strengthen their impact on the economy.”

What this means for you:  not only will you be able to attend in-person events such as workshops, Connection Points and the Annual Entrepreneurial Woman’s Conference, you will soon be able to take advantage of valuable courses online with interactive capabilities, testing and the option to pause and return to your learning when needed.  The WBDC is grateful for the support of Deluxe Corporation Foundation to create these new business education opportunities.  Look for the first two courses to be released in late Spring 2013, and find all the latest offerings from the WBDC.
