Dear NAWBO Silicon Valley Members & Friends,

March is dedicated to you, the woman you are and to the men who stand by you.

March is a month to celebrate the strength, resilience and courage of all women. March is a month to recognize the incredible accomplishments of women throughout history and to honor our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and colleagues. March is a month to empower and support each other and to recognize the ongoing fight for gender equality. March is a month to be proud of who you are and to appreciate those around you. Let’s come together to celebrate all the amazing women in our lives.

Join us on March 29th for HERstory in the Making – A Free Virtual International Summit held via Zoom. NAWBO is bringing women business owners from the four corners of the globe together for HERstory in the Making during Women’s History Month with a panel, roundtable discussions and speed networking to explore how to be part of this important transition with global opportunities and impacts.

Save the Date April 21 at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET NAWBO Certification Open Forum. NAWBO Institute Certification has been up and running for months now. It’s time to reconnect and share what’s happening and what’s still to come with this program that’s giving all women business owners access to WBE and MWBE certification as a tool to grow. Come prepared to listen and ask questions as you consider if certification is the right next step in your entrepreneurial journey!

It’s important to take a break from life’s hustle and bustle to appreciate the beauty around us. Enjoy the moment, appreciate the beauty of nature, and take a deep breath of the sweet scent of the roses. Life is full of moments that are worth savoring, and stopping to smell the roses can be an opportunity to pause and reflect on the beauty in life. Happy Spring.
