CBW’s mentorship program is an official Lean In affiliate. Inspired by Sheryl Sandberg’s book of the same name, Lean In Circles are small peer groups that meet regularly to learn and grow together.

The Lean In Circle affords you an even greater opportunity to interact with you peers and a circle moderator in a small group setting. Circles are comprised of a mix of early-career, mid-career and executive level professionals.

Charity of Choice

Each year, CBW designates a Charity of Choice that aligns with CBW’s mission to promote the advancement of women in business. The selected organization is recognized at each CBW event.
