Women in Business

Join fellow women in business from the US, from Germany, or from anywhere, to discuss the specific issues and opportunities that we face as working professionals in Northern and Southern California. A list of our past events are below; click on the links to see photos and videos of the discussions.

Attend one of our businesswomen speaker events (open to the public; men are welcome too), drop in on a casual networking social (members only), and connect with WIB online via our LinkedIn Group (search “GABA – Women in Business”), Facebook page ( and Twitter (

Each event and every topic is open for discussion – everyone is encouraged to share her story!
