The Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce – the driving force of business for Southwest King County – will be holding their annual Celebration of Women in Business Event on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at Anthony’s Homeport in Des Moines. The Celebration of Women in Business event is an inspiring event that brings together successful local female leaders, male allies, executives, business owners and young professionals to share insights, exchange ideas and empower their careers. Everyone is welcome as we gather together to commit ourselves and our community to mentor, encourage and celebrate women who have and will lead our local economy and community. Congressman Adam Smith as well as Andrea Reay, President/CEO Seattle Southside Chamber will help facilitate a panel discussion about working in the post #MeToo workplace and how we can all work towards building better and more inclusive work places. “I would like to thank the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce for their work to promote, encourage and celebrate women in business,” Congressman Smith said. “Women owned businesses are an incredibly significant part of the American economy, especially in the Puget Sound Region. Women entrepreneurs run and own businesses critical to our local economy, from consulting, tourism, tech and the healthcare industry. In 2016, women-owned companies in Washington state had an economic impact of more than $30 billion. It’s vital that we continue to support and empower young female entrepreneurs and professionals because when women succeed, we all succeed.” Celebration of Women Event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 4 – 6 p.m. at Anthony’s Homeport in Des Moines (421 S 228th St, Des Moines, WA 98198). “Thank you to our host, Anthony’s Homeport, and to our event sponsors, Crain Photography and South King Media.” REGISTER ONLINE Space is limited at the event. so don’t forget to register early to reserve your place:
