Be the Change offers new format of business classes for women

Now in its fifth year, Be the Change Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission of empowering, strengthening and inspiring women, offers a series of 12 classes for women who want to start a business or build on an existing one.  

The Be the Change Foundation board decided to adopt an all-virtual classroom format for the fall 2021 semester with an online curriculum based on the in-person program. 

WomenBizLaunch is a 12-week online entrepreneurship program that educates women on how to form a business and run it successfully or move to the next level in an existing business.  

The two-hour class sessions will be held weekly to a nationwide audience, live via Zoom and recorded in case the time or date is not convenient. Sessions begin with an “Entrepreneurial Spotlight,” where short stories are shared by small business owners hoping to empower and inspire participants as they begin this new journey.  

“We want our participants to be inspired and empowered not only for their own growth but to support others as they grow and truly Be the Change,” said founder Marianne Clyde. 

This 12-week class costs $475. Enrollment for the fall 2021 semester is open now. The first session starts Sept.14.
