The ACT Canberra of Women in Business is a community of knowledge, friendship and empowerment harnessed within a safe and welcoming environment. Canberra businesswomen supporting one another not only encourages personal and professional development, but creates a more equal business community which promotes skills sharing mentorship. I recommend the ACT Canberra of Women in Business to all businesswomen in the ACT and will continue to support this valuable institution.
