Group helps businesswomen to thrive
With two well-attended events, new women’s business network Women of Onslow is going strong, according to its chief executive.
Part of a new three-year partnership between Onslow Chamber of Commerce and Industry and BHP, the Women of Onslow network was established earlier this year to support the professional development of local women in business.
The chamber is developing a program of events throughout the year for the network, having already held sessions with Pilbara lifestyle coach Amanda Ewin and Cracker Jack Paddle Sports earlier this month.
OCCI chief executive Chantelle King said by providing more opportunities for networking and support, she envisioned the partnership would bring significant benefits to the Onslow business community.
“I’m delighted that the partnership has made the creation of a Women of Onslow network possible,” she said.
“We’re planning a series of events throughout the year focusing on what the women of Onslow want, covering topics ranging from business to leadership, inspiration, wellness and goal setting.”
Lilac Lounge owner Ms Ewin said she was glad to be part of a project that promoted networking and support among local female professionals.
“These events are opening doors and creating relationships in the community with likeminded people that may have similar passions and ideas,” she said.
“We’re so excited to see how the Women of Onslow network develops and what it can bring to the town of Onslow.”
The second Women of Onslow event, featuring Lilac Lounge owner Amanda Ewin as a speaker, was popular with local female professionals.
