Boss Babes West Virginia has sprung from idea to reality over the course of the last year and a half.
Through civic engagement, meetups, panels, and discussions, our programming is a facility of opportunity for thousands of women in West Virginia. Community building and supporting gender equity has a positive impact on the society and our local economy; we believe in working with partners that share this goal and push for building community infrastructure around women and women-owned entities. We want to provide a hub for women with the space, network, and support platform to fulfill their ambitions in West Virginia.
