Billings Chamber Women’s Network Offers ENCORE

The Billings Chamber is seeking diverse women in leadership roles to form a core group of influencers inspiring women through ENCORE: Encouragement. Networking. Coaching. Opportunities. Resources. Empowerment.

The definition of ENCORE is “a demand for repetition or reappearance made by an audience.” In this case, the audience is your peers and the demand is for women in leadership roles to repeatedly come together and commit to self-reflection, development and mentoring. As we work together to share wisdom, solve problems and discuss complicated issues, we can reappear as better, stronger versions of ourselves. We are committed to supporting women in leadership and business. Your best keeps getting better!

Through our unique programming, we focus on both personal and professional growth and explore current issues facing women in leadership roles. At the same time, participants enhance their own leadership skills through a combination of structured workshops, small group discussions and opportunities for free-flowing conversation. Portions of our programming are designed specifically around our class members’ interests and needs.

Who Should Participate?

The ideal candidates are willing to take the risk of leaving their comfort zone with the intended reward of learning and tackling challenges. Our interactive yet personal sessions promise to be enjoyable, offer learning opportunities, and meet you where you are. We ask you to bring your authentic self, a willingness to learn and contribute, as well as an open mind. We will explore topics like work-life integration, personal health, leveraging your strengths as a woman in leadership roles, uplifting yourself and others, accountability, gender bias, and even some topics that others hesitate to discuss.

When Will It Be Held?

2024 ENCORE sessions run from September 2024 to April 2025 and meet from 1-5 pm on the third Thursday of each month. Tuition includes educational materials, assessments, refreshments, and activities for each session.

Registration opens July 1, 2024
