Women in Ecommerce™ takes great pride in consistently planning and hosting exciting events where our members and guests can get together and share ideas, experiences and resources with one another.
Here are just a few:
eWednesday Wire-Side Chats
“Wire-side chats” are teleconferences which allow attendees to ask questions, network and share ideas and resources with women around the globe about ecommerce and other business/professional issues. We have since combined this event with eWednesday chats when they fall on a Wednesday. During these events Women in Ecommerce™ brings together business, professional and executive women for real-time discussions about a variety of topics that pertain to women’s lives. Now it is possible to talk with members and supporters of Women in Ecommerce™ live to discuss and solve all your challenges and problems and answer those questions you have about business, social networking, wealth building, lifestyle, relationships and success. Generally held the 2nd or 4th Wednesday unless otherwise noted.
1st Fridayz™ Forum
1st Fridayz™ is a three-tiered platform (using email/teleconferencing/webconferencing) networking event that takes place the 1st Friday of every month. This 8-hour event has become a popular “hangout” for women who want to learn more doing MORE business on and off the web using Web 2.0 tools and resources. In addition to the informational/ educational component, networking is at the core of 1st Fridayz™success.
