How Chapters Are Organized
In chapters composed of approximately 20 accomplished women entrepreneurs, women presidents from diverse industries and backgrounds address business concerns in a roundtable format and function as an informal board of directors for their businesses. There are currently 120 chapters in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Portugal, Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
Chapters are moderated by professionally trained facilitators, all of whom own their own businesses. Each chapter serves as a peer advisory group based on the four Cs of the WPO: Collaboration, Confidentiality, Commitment, and Connections. WPO members address both strategic and operational issues focusing on financial concerns, organizational development, hiring and firing, and other issues defined by chapter members.
