Start a Conversation Campaign
Various NAWBO Buffalo Niagara members visit local participation high schools to spend one class period with girls to have a conversation about entrepreneurship. This is simply just that – a casual conversation about the possibility of entrepreneurship as a career path. The students have a chance to ask questions, share stories, or just chat about what it’s like to own your own business.
The school districts and teachers are welcoming us with open arms and realize the opportunity we are offering to their students. This program has been a huge success in its first week and NAWBO Buffalo Niagara anticipates extending the program over the next year.
Thank you to all students who are participating and all educators and administrators for making this all happen!
NAWBO Chapter President
A few comments from our members:
“The “Start a Conversation” campaign is exhilarating for both mentor members and students. As a mentor I was energized talking with the students and empowering them. Their excitement mirrored my feelings and we all felt the power of NAWBO! What a wonderful opportunity to widen their horizon of opportunities and work with schools who are proactive in supporting female students and their dreams!”

“What an exciting experience. I had the best time as the “Pioneer” visitor to the program. Have fun when you do go. These are great kids.”
