Communities thrive when women business owners succeed. Business ownership can often seem like a vast and overwhelming journey, but North Dakota Business Women's Center (NDWBC) is here to help. The non-profit organization has offices in Williston, Fargo, Bismarck and Wahpeton.

NDWBC's Strong Women, Strong Connections event is Friday, June 28 in Watford City at First International Bank & Trust. This event offers attendees the opportunity to engage with a panel of local business owners, discuss challenges and solutions, and connect with peers and valuable business resources.

The panelists are Calli Thorne from Triangle M Ranch & Feedlot and Maxwell Leadership, Kordae Hayden from Homestead Physical Therapy, and Lindsay Veeder-Haught, the manager of Door 204.

Not a business owner? No problem! Whether you own a business or support women business owners, you're welcome here. Chamber leaders, economic developers, community supporters, business lenders, accountants, and more are encouraged to attend.
