Our goal is to bring women from our local Southeastern Arizona communities together to inspire them, connect them with like-minded women, and to build relationships amongst the women in our community. Our theme this year is “The Future of Business” and our goal is to set expectations for what the future has in store and provoke discussion on what that will look like with the hope it will help economic development in Southeastern Arizona.
Our hope is that our Women@Work Conference becomes the largest women’s conference in Southeastern Arizona. We bring in women experts to speak to women who work in any industry to discuss topics that relate to women. We are always working hard to promote business, women, and women who work in our communities, and we are passionate about connecting each other to our small businesses and working together to get the support and information women need to live their best lives.
Small Business Development Center
The Eastern Arizona College and Cochise College Small Business Development Centers are part of a national and statewide network of small business assistance providers. They offer free consulting to local small businesses and provide them with the tools and training needed to be successful. The SBDC is funded by the local community college with assistance from a grant provided by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
