The Women’s Business Council of Marion, Ohio, exists to “inspire women to reach their full potential through mentoring, networking, education, and recognition.” This professional organization began in 1994 to foster and promote self-employed entrepreneurial women and women working in the corporate environment throughout the greater Marion area. Marion’s Women’s Business Council is one of a select number of cities to present The Athena Award of excellence in leadership to a woman of distinction each year. This national honor recognizes a business and professional woman who has demonstrated her passion to help other women reach their goals in business or community leadership.
A non-profit organization, the WBC, seeks to support female students from the Marion area pursuing college studies in a business-related field—finance, economics, marketing, management, advertising, accounting, human resources, entrepreneurship, and similar fields. With the ever-rising cost of higher education, helping others achieve their educational goals shows the world where your priorities lie and ensures a brighter future.
Supporting the Women’s Business Council Scholarship Fund at Marion Community Foundation is one of the best things you can do to help future businesswomen in Marion. We can help you help Marion, forever. Call Dean Jacob at 740-387-9704 to learn more.
