HAPPENINGS

We are continuously hosting different events, happenings, and gatherings across our different markets that we invite you to join us for, either exclusively for WIE or via our network partners.

Current

The last few months have undoubtedly changed the entertainment business landscape, especially for small businesses. During these uncertain times, it's more important than ever for us to help lift each other up and offer support where it's needed the most.

 

The co-founders of WIE, Renee Rossi and Gretchen McCourt, both own companies specializing in business consulting and communications.

 

To help small businesses strategize during this time, they're each donating two hours of time every Friday for virtual "power meetings," lasting about 15 minutes. Learn more about the program here!
