Women business owners discuss the impact of public policy


       “Women Impacting Public Policy” will be discussed during the Binghamton University Small Business Development Center’s Women Business Owners Roundtable from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Friday, February 23, at the Binghamton Regency on Water Street in downtown Binghamton.

       Dawn Rivers Baker, president and CEO of Wahmpreneur Publishing Inc. (WPI), will explore some of the ways public policy can affect business, as well how and when to advocate for your business.  Participants will also learn the pros and cons of working alone versus joining an advocacy group.

       Baker founded WPI, an information provider for microbusinesses in 1999, and is the award-winning journalist behind the MicroEnterprise Journal, an electronic business newsletter.  Baker has been quoted as a small business policy expert in publications such as CBS Marketwatch and Entrepreneur’s Be Your Own Boss magazine. 

       The roundtable costs $10 a person payable at the door and includes a continental breakfast. Attendees are encouraged to bring business cards and brochures to share.
Advance registration is required. Call Binghamton University’s Small Business Development Center at 607-777-4024 to register.
