Leadership Visit Scholarship
Women’s Network is a division of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. Its mission is to connect, empower and engage our members through leadership development, educational opportunities and innovative outreach. To fulfill that mission, Women’s Network is offering one full scholarship to send a Women’s Network member on the annual Chamber Leadership Visit. The scholarship covers the entire registration fee, which includes general registration and group meals.
This year’s Leadership Visit will take place in Athens, GA. Nicknamed the Classic City, Athens is best known as the home of the University of Georgia. The city has also built a name for its thriving music industry, booming arts district, outstanding public and private schools, and high-quality colleges and universities. Columbia and Athens share many commonalities, such as population size, median age, and being home to major universities.
Specific sessions for the Leadership Visit are currently being developed and may include entrepreneurism and retention of local business, tourism, education, DEI, and more.
