WEO February Meeting on 2/15/17

The Women Entrepreneurs Organization of SW Washington presents Kymm Nelsen of the Institute for Conscious Leadership. Kymm will share the principles of conscious capitalism for women-owned small businesses in her presentation Conscious Capitalism: How feminine power is leading the next era of business.

Kymm explains: "Since the rise of capitalism during the Industrial Revolution, its tone and methods have been driven by the command-and-control approach adapted from the military. Now, 21st century business is transforming to include feminine leadership strengths that will soon make old leadership styles and business models obsolete. Some call it the triple bottom line. Others call it good business. Whatever you call it, women are leading the evolution to a saner, more sustainable approach to business."

The theme in February is luau, so wear your Hawaiian shirts!
