Women’s Business Center of Utah Hosts Networking Events Locally


The Women’s Business Center of Utah (WBC Utah) hosted two events in Helper and Price cities to bring networking opportunities, tips and more to business-minded women in the area.

The first event was hosted on June 6 at Helper Beer beginning at 5 p.m. During this event, those in attendance were invited to get free headshots taken by Amanda Wheeler. Pizza, salad and drinks were available during the event, where Outreach Coordinator Allie Farnham explained that her role with the organization is to travel primarily through the southern part of the state and put together networking events.

These events aim to make sure that women in business know there are free resources through WBC Utah, who is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. There is something for all stages of business through the organization, who’s mission is to help Utah women in business build confidence, create opportunities and experience success.

This is accomplished through flexible scheduling, compassion, experience as women in business and more. Farnham informed the ladies in attendance that Utah has been named the best state in the nation to start a business, though it is the 49th state in the nation for workplace environment for women.

WBC Utah has three main services for women in business, which is advising, training and the Utah women-owned directory. There are three business advisors in the organization, based out of Salt Lake City, Moab and Vernal. 30 minute sessions can be booked with them as often as needed.

For the training portion, there are two options, which are self-paced and instructor-led classes. The classes and information for the signup can all be found on the WBC Utah website, which Farnham took time to walk those in attendance through. The classes feature weekly peer lessons with subject matter experts, project assignments to immediately implement the best practices, small mastermind groups for support and much more.

According to their website, WBCUtah hosts the only inclusive directory of Utah’s women-owned and operated businesses. This directory is both free to be featured on and free to use. There are many ways to search and claiming your own listing is simple.

The following morning, the fun was moved to Club Mecca on Price City’s Main Street for a brunch event. During the brunch, the women in attendance had a sit-down discussion regarding being a woman in business in Utah, hurdles that have been found as a woman in business and the like.
