Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

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.”
