Whatcom Women in Business was established in 1978, and is one of the oldest and most encompassing network/referral sources for business women. It is the mission of WWiB to promote a positive image of professional women in business while developing leadership skills, strength through mutual support, mentoring and opportunities for business and personal growth.

WWiB provides regular opportunities for members and guests to mentor for personal and professional growth. WWiB is comprised of business owners and upper level managers. The membership is interested in developing and maintaining proactive roles within the organization and the community at large. Through teaching, learning, leadership and peer support we strive to exemplify and promote the four  areas we honor - leadership, professionalism, community and mentoring.
