Women in business

The Niles Chamber of Commerce & Industry is excited to ignite our Women in Business Comittee with a mission to create an inclusive environment that inspires leadership, provides development and empowers collaboration among today’s professional women. Women in Business is an active group of dynamic professional women who share valuable insights into the ever-changing world of business and foster personal and professional growth.

Through educational and networking events every other month throughout the year, professional women can build lasting relationships and gain valuable knowledge on topics important to them.

When does this group meet?

Women in Business Committee meets on the second Friday of every other month.

Upcoming events are posted on our calendar as well as this page.  We try to have events and drop in lunches on alternating months.
