Dear NAWBO Silicon Valley Members & Friends,

Join us in celebrating our 35th anniversary milestone and the conclusion of our fiscal period spanning from 2022 to 2023 this month. It fills us with immense excitement to share the milestones and achievements we have attained.

The NAWBO Silicon Valley Chapter, recognized as a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization, has ingeniously crafted enjoyable and engaging activities both in-person and virtually.
The Education Group under NAWBO Silicon Valley, our non-profit 501(c)(3), carried on with its educational initiatives. These included an in-person event titled “Marketing Your Business for Success and Growth”, and a virtual gathering with a topic on “Make Time for Your Goals”.
Additionally, fundraising activities were organized at Kendra Scott and the San Jose Sharks – Women of Teal.

Why do we do this?

Our mission is to empower a diverse group of women to attain self-reliance and autonomy. We aim to inspire, bolster, and impart knowledge to women who are running their own businesses.

We persist in our efforts to construct collaborative relationships with various organizations and companies. This is part of our ongoing commitment to augment the benefits we extend to our members through community partnerships. Some of our new partnerships include:

  1. Rotary International District 5170
  2. Macy’s Valley Fair
  3. Latinas in Tech

At our 5th Annual Crystal Chair Awards, we had the honor of acknowledging the remarkable contributions of three women from our community. We encourage you to mark your calendars for the forthcoming 6th annual event scheduled for March 2024.

As I enter my final year as President, my dedication remains unwavering in propelling the Silicon Valley Chapter towards novel frontiers.

I wish to express my deep gratitude to my outstanding Board of Directors, committee members and chapter administrators for their dedication and commitment.
