Women in Business Networking (WiBN) is a group of diverse women in business who encourage one another’s professional growth and success. For 10 years, WiBN has been honoring women making a difference, in and around the Miami Valley, for what they do and how they do it. Created by Jeanne Porter in 2008 WiBN, became a program of the Better Business Bureau in 2014. WiBN provides forums for building relationships so women will achieve career and personal success through education, resources and recognition.
Every year since 2009, WiBN has announced its Top 25 Women to Watch: Influential Women of the Miami Valley awards.These awards recognize women in the Miami Valley who are exceptional in their roles and respected in their fields, who are causing more than just a ripple in the public arena and in their communities and who “light a spark” or make an impression.
