EmBe gathered representatives of nearly a dozen workplace networks to share their insights about women supporting each other at work. These 40 women represented a range of careers, experiences and levels of leadership, ultimately answering a resounding “yes” when asked if additional meetings should be convened.

A study from the Kellogg School of Management shared that 77% of the highest-achieving women in the study had strong ties with an inner circle of two to three other women. The research also showed that women who form a strong inner circle with other women who can share career advice are nearly three times more likely to get a better job than women who don’t have that support system.
EmBe has been using information like this to empower women in the Sioux Empire for nearly a century, bringing people together to make a difference in individual lives that flows into the workplace and the community.
