Women in Business
The HRCC Women in Business Committee is committed to educating, supporting, and enriching the personal and professional lives of women within the community.
The WIB meets on the 4th Thursday of each month at 11:45, typically at Atria Larson Place, 1450 Whitney Avenue or at Benchmark Senior Living at Hamden, 35 Hamden Hills Drive. Occasional location changes, and “WIB Networking Business After Hours,” are held at various businesses starting at 5 PM. Through a variety of fundraising efforts, the committee sponsors a scholarship for a female Hamden High School senior who is pursuing a career in business. The meeting format begins with a networking luncheon followed by dynamic speakers who address relevant issues for women in the workplace. A $5 suggested donation helps support our Women in Business Scholarship fund.
