Where Inspiration Leads: Women Choosing Leadership in Business & Life

Share Article

The Women’s Business Exchange, Seattle’s longest running women’s business networking group, is hosting a special evening social and networking event celebrating the influence of women in business with Dede Henley as keynote speaker and Boeing’s woman-led 737 MAX division as title sponsor.

Is it true that feminine traits are coming into vogue for the success of business? Do skills of intuition, empathy and collaboration affect the bottom line?

Dede Henley, Consultant and CEO of The Henley Leadership Group says, “Yes.” A champion for the “feminine” in business, Henley says that “competing with others isn’t her (a woman’s) first urge, being an insightful leader people trust is.” And since the downturn in the economy, trust is becoming the name of the game for building relationships that make money. Communication that builds trust is where a woman’s natural way of working, and living, brings her to the forefront of leadership.

WBE is all about expanding the wisdom, influence and leadership of women in the workplace, whether they are in business for themselves of part of a larger organization. “It is the balance of male and female that creates the best outcome in all situations and with more women holding key leadership roles we can realize this balance and its ensuing success,” says Victoria Likes, President of WBE.

If you’re about growing the future of women in business, this event is for you. Come light your leadership fire!

WBE History:

WBE was founded in 1979 by Donna Nunn as a means to help working women develop better business and management skills at a time when women were still new to the professional workforce. Her approach—as unique then as it is now—was based on the belief that women are most successful when inspired by models of success and when empowered to bring their whole selves into their careers and businesses.
Three decades later, WBE continues to offer working women safe harbor, friendship, fresh perspectives, and the opportunity for business and professional growth. We believe that our work at WBE—and the success of working women in America—is as critical and relevant today, as it has always been.
