Redland Women In Business

Our Story

In 2003 the Redlands Coast Chamber of Commerce identified a need for a dedicated series of events specifically for the business women in Redlands to meet and network. In response, the Redland Women in Business was launched with a series of events held on a regular basis. Typically the events are both inclusive and welcoming, with a general attitude of acceptance and support being expressed towards both members and non-members of the Chamber alike. 

Redland Women In Business meetings are designed to inspire and educate, as well as nurture business to business relationships. The formal luncheons feature a keynote presenter, and there is plenty of time for making new friendships and building on existing relationships. The informal events are get-togethers for fostering business relationships, and are typically held at a venue where both food and drink are available for purchase at your own discretion.
