WBN provides personal and professional resources to advance the presence of aspiring and successful businesswomen.

Since its founding, WBN has grown to support 20+ chapters in Southwestern Pennsylvania. WBN is proud to support the growth of women business owners and professionals through WBN’s network of chapters and we personally invite you to become a part of our membership’s success story.


What's Your "Why" For Networking

Expanding your business connections. Collaborating with like-minded women. Strengthening your business foundation. Building your confidence. No matter what your “why” is for networking, the women of WBN can help you achieve it.

(Updated June 10, 2020)

We, your WBN Board, wanted to reach out regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our organization. We have been in discussion over how this may impact WBN and how we can continue to support each other, network with each other and build and grow ourselves and our businesses with the current situation and as the situation changes. The most important thing is the health and safety of our members and so we understand that many of you may have concerns about in person chapter meetings or networking events in the coming weeks. 

The WBN DIfference

I have been a member since 2003 and have found WBN to be one of the most dynamic women’s networking organizations in our area. WBN is a community of women in business who truly support each others professional and personal growth. Not only has it assisted me in making valuable business contacts, but I have received invaluable business advice and support, as well as, friendships that truly make a difference.

I love that this group of women are all supportive of each other! In my 50+ years of experience, I've never been around a group of women that will go out of their way to support each other the way the women of the WBN do.

Karen Yun-Lutz

I love the variety of professional women I have access to. From small business owners to legal or real estate professionals, I have women with lots of knowledge at my fingertips!

Nancy Boyer

In startling and remarkable ways my membership in WBN has been an exceptional marketing and promotional tool. Referrals comprise 100% of my cleaning and host business. New to the area, these extraordinary women became friends and “hooked me up” in all sorts of ways, from helping me to find an apartment, to locating resources, and among other gifts, the learning and growth from being involved with this group of motivated, brilliant, creative women.
