U.S. Chamber of Commerce Supports Women Through Empowerment Workshop

July 12, 2012

Vail, CO – The Center for Women in Business (CWB), a project of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is partnering with the Women’s Empowerment Workshop in Vail, CO, to help women gain self-empowerment and realize their full potential.  The second annual Women’s Empowerment Workshop, September 13-16, is a nature adventure retreat for women of all ages and abilities, held in the dramatic setting of Vail, Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

“Having the U.S. Chamber of Commerce join us enhances this event and gets the word out to many more women who are seeking to jumpstart their life in a powerful way,” commented Susie Kincade, the workshop co-founder. “Women often need a boost of empowerment to feel self-assured in their purpose and place in the business world. Women are one of the greatest yet most undeveloped resources in the world today.”

The Women’s Empowerment Workshop uses nature as both a metaphor and teacher to lead women on a discovery of their limitless potential. Dynamic and inspiring experiences in the natural world help women navigate their river of life, overcome obstacles, and learn tools they can take into their life, no matter where they live.  Renowned facilitators, world-class outfitters life coaches and leaders guide participants on pathways of self-discovery.

“Partnering with the Women’s Empowerment Workshop offers an exciting opportunity for the CWB to engage women and help them tap into their extraordinary business and leadership abilities,” offered Roberta Phillips, Executive Director of CWB. “Women often approach business opportunities and leadership roles differently than men. Having a strong understanding of who they are and self-confidence in their potential is an important foundation. This event shows women how to connect to that confidence and with each other.” 

The Center for Women in Business (CWB), a project of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Campaign for Free Enterprise, promotes and empowers women business leaders to achieve their personal and professional goals by increasing opportunities for women to serve on corporate boards and in the C-suite; mentoring women in the early stages of their careers or re-entering the workforce; and building a network of women entrepreneurs to encourage peer-to-peer networking, education, and professional growth.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
