Women Warriors in Business 2019
SYMPOSIUM | LUNCHEON
We are proud to bring back this popular, power-packed event focused on empowering, enriching, supporting and encouraging women business owners, entrepreneurs and leaders for their next level of success.

The goal of Women Warriors in Business is to facilitate a real dialogue about topics that are important to women entrepreneurs and leaders. The program will help women explore leadership challenges and opportunities, identify competitive advantages, help with personal and organizational branding, access lenders for financing, and utilize procurement certifications that are necessary when it comes to competing for public/private contracts.
According to U.S. Census Bureau data, New Jersey based women-owned firms make up nearly 32 percent of all businesses, generating $49.5 billion in receipts. Nationally, a 2012 study from the National Women’s Business Council reported that over 9.8 million women have businesses that generated $1.4 trillion in receipts. Of that figure, approximately 383,000 veteran women-owned businesses – which are one of the fastest growing segments of the veteran population – generated $17.9 billion in receipts.
Though the numbers appear encouraging, women business owners still face significant growth challenges, as many cite issues including access to capital, education and resources being contributing factors to business development. “Women Warriors in Business” aims to address key issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders while providing encouragement, support and access to the resources needed to fuel growth.
“Women Warriors in Business is proud to partner with The American Legion and salute our women veterans. Registration fees are waived for women veterans, military members and their dependents.

Being the CEO & Using Your Voice
Women in power are often perceived as being ‘difficult’, which often causes many women leaders to constantly doubt their effectiveness. How can you get past that and move forward with confidence despite unanticipated setbacks and trials?
Investing in Women – The Truth from Angels & VCs
Studies show that women leadership leads to increased innovation in business, however, women receive .1% of venture capital financing compared to .4% of men. Why is that and how can you level the playing field in your favor?
Sharing or Over-Sharing?! Balancing Your Message
Being authentic and genuine creates priceless content but what if you’re sharing too much? What should you know to make sure you’re crafting a heartfelt message that’s not alienating the very people you’re looking to attract?
