 (PHOENIX) – In an effort to connect, inspire and advance Valley business women, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce today announced the introduction of its new professional development and networking program, the Professional Women’s Alliance (PWA). Formerly known as the Professional Women’s Roundtable, the revamped program will now focus on unique presentations from inspiring business women in the community who will share insight into leadership, career growth, community involvement and women-specific issues. The program will launch with Ambassador Barbara Barrett on Thursday, December 6 from 11am-1pm at a new location, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Ambassador Barrett will be discussing global issues affecting women today and any interested parties may RSVP online.

“Earlier this year, we surveyed our Professional Women’s Roundtable attendees and gathered some very interesting feedback,” remarked Todd Sanders, president & CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. “Our active female Chamber members were most interested in receiving tangible leadership advice from successful business women that have made a significant impact in the Valley, both through their careers and community involvement. We listened. This program shift is part of our ongoing mission to provide programming and services that our members see true value in.”

Christine Aguilera, President of Skymall, will follow Ambassador Barrett on Tuesday, January 8th, 2013, speaking on strategies for success in business and life. Each month, the Chamber will host different women leaders who will present on a variety of topics related to leadership and growth.
