Female Business Owners Invited to Be Part of Confluence 

The number of women seeking mentorship for their small business is rising gradually and accounts for more than half of all mentorship requests, according to SCORE data. 

That’s why SCORE Greater Cincinnati is planning Confluence, a workshop on Sept. 29 at Mayerson Hall on the Hebrew Union College campus. The event is designed to provide female business owners with connections, information, and inspiration for business success. Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval will be the featured speaker.

SCORE’s local chapter has partnered with Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber to offer a half-day program with panelists, exhibitors, and roundtable discussions.
