We believe it is important to do our part to convene, empower, and recognize Montana’s women in business, and therefore will host the Montana Chamber’s first Women in Business Summit and International Women’s Day Power Lunch. It is our hope to nurture a statewide ecosystem that will support women’s leadership development and specific needs in the workplace in collaboration with partner organizations currently providing financial and educational resources, mentorship, and networking opportunities. By empowering women in business and women entrepreneurs, the Montana Chamber can play a pivotal role in creating a more diverse, innovative, and prosperous business environment for all.
