Leadership Forum

Astra Leadership Forum

Led by successful women business owners, the Leadership Forum serves as the voice of Astra Women’s Business Alliance’s region and is a powerful link to WBENC, the national certifying organization. Input from the Leadership Forum influences the direction of regional Astra and national WBENC programming and events.

Astra champions the growth and success of women-owned businesses in Alaska, Northern California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Because the business climate is different in each state in Astra’s region, we rely on state Leadership Forums to provide a local voice and build communities of women business enterprises (WBEs).

The Leadership Forum also connects women-owned businesses with each other so that they can network, share ideas and offer solutions. This includes hosting local educational events and networking.

Get involved. Join your state’s Leadership Forum by contacting your state’s leadership.
