Women in Business

We are a group of enthusiastic, energetic, enterprising women who are passionate about helping release talents and potential of women, although men are always welcome to join us too.

Who We Are

We work with the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce who kindly provide us with much needed and appreciated helping hands to organise events, publicise our achievements and generally encourage and support us in our endeavours.

We all volunteer our time and meet regularly to come up with ideas and opportunities for creative, inspiring and interactive ways for women to network, learn, signpost and share with each other.

Our Ambitions Are...

  • Supporting and encouraging women to have the confidence and means to become the best they possibly can in whatever they want to do and achieve.
  • Enabling and empowering women to have greater opportunities to establish their own enterprises, access senior roles in business and become engaged and fulfilled citizens.
  • Encouraging and supporting young people to have the ambition and opportunity to become our next generation entrepreneurs and employees.
  • Celebrating the successes and achievements of women, encouraging us all to be advocates and role models to release talents and potential of all women.
  • Achieving a greater balance of leadership opportunities so that women have more opportunity to influence business and the wider community.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”
- Marianne Williamson

What We Do...

  • Hold regular networking, providing a relaxed and friendly environment to meet other women to learn and share experiences, develop relationships, create business opportunities.
  • Organise events with inspirational speakers who share their knowledge, wisdom and experiences.
  • Provide a platform for sharing information relevant to women in business and specific business opportunities through our web site and social media.
  • Offer Peer Coaching Meetings and support.
  • We respect, honour, profile and celebrate our individual and collective achievements and talents.
