On-demand-Women-in-Business

Pickaway Business Women Roundtable

Discover how leaders and events shape the community. Last month half a dozen local Pickaway County businesswomen joined a special roundtable discussion on career exploration to inspire the next generation of businesswomen. The free on-demand webinar is now available to anyone who wants to explore business career pathways and gain personal life lessons, reflections, and offer an opportunity to expand their professional network. This is a great resource for educators that teach a career exploration class!

Women in business are typically very active community leaders as well, such as supporting local opportunities for engagement. The women involved in this panel are examples of working professionals, but also community leaders and mentors for young professionals to follow. For more information or resource support please reach out to OSU Extension and Pickaway WORKS!
