Women's Roundtable

  • Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce Jaguar Communications Video Conference Center 220 South Broadway, Suite 100 (map)

Develop relationships within this supportive group of women leaders who meet the third Friday morning of each month. The Women's Round Table provides a small, safe environment for women to: practice and refine skills, discuss challenges specific to women in positions of leadership, learn together and empower each other to take risks. Join us for a fun, engaging program driven by the needs of the group.
