What is the WE Forum?
The Women Entrepreneurs (WE) Forum was launched in 2019 to provide free educational programming for women who are running a business, as well as those who are seeking to start a business. The idea started as a partnership between Saint Mary's University and the Rochester Area Economic Development Inc. (RAEDI). Over the years, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce, Collider Foundation, Copiavia, Rochester Women Magazine, DMC (Destination Medical Center), and Elocina have joined as partners. These partnerships are indicative of the desire and commitment of all these organizations to support new business start ups and ensure they have the right training and networks to succeed.
What Happens at our Events? Each month we hear from speakers who have deep experience in the topic to be discussed. There is lots of room for questions from the attendees to ensure the discussion is relevant, informed by experience, and addresses the real questions women have when running a business.
WE Forum is held on the 3rd Thursday of the month. There is a rotation of lunch workshops one month, evening social connects the next, and morning panelists the third.
Workshop Meetings: 11:30am - 1:00pm: January, April, August, & November
Evening Social Connects: 4:30pm - 6:00pm: February, May, & September
