A Message from the President . . .

Dear AnnaKate,

March 8th is International Women's Day. Make sure you celebrate women around the world. It is so important for women to support each other, not to be in conflict or in competition with each other and to allow our differences. We are all women but we are not all the same. Allowing differences makes room for women to succeed. | Read the entire President's Message

Please join us on Thursday,
March 13th at the Educational Speaker Series & Dinner to hear local women business owners, who are part of the evolutionary growth market.


Best wishes on your success,


M Kay Robinson
President, NAWBO-SF Bay Area
