Women in Business: Opportunities in Hood County

For more than a decade, our local Chamber of Commerce has organized a “Women in Business” committee to “to inspire, influence and champion women enhancing their roles as business leaders in our community.”

Diversity in the entrepreneurial sector and in the workforce fosters creativity and innovation. Historically, LGL Magazine has shown its support for business women in Hood County by featuring articles highlighting their accomplishments and contributions to our community. These include Dr. Paula McDonald, Vickie Nivens, Eliza Knapp, Dominique Inge, Elise Techentine, Tracie Harper, and more. These projects inspired past LGL Events such as the “Living Her Best Life Awards,” where we recognized Hood County’s very talented and hard working women. A luncheon and ceremony followed where we awarded the LGL Volunteer of the Year, the LGL Businesswoman of the Year, and the LGL Artist of the Year.

For more than a decade, our local Chamber of Commerce has organized a “Women in Business” committee to “to inspire, influence and champion women enhancing their roles as business leaders in our community.” Together, they host annual events including the WIB Summit at the Granbury Conference Center, as well as quarterly luncheon and after hours networking events.

The Granbury Chamber of Commerce’s WIB Committee has rapidly grown in popularity over the years. Hundreds of women attend the annual summit and have advanced their careers from personal development and effective networking. Initiative, passion, and courage can sometimes be misinterpreted in the workplace for women. Meeting with likeminds that challenge this notion has positive outcomes for women working professionally in Hood County. Creating a space for support and inspiration has the power to be transformative and we are so fortunate to have this blossoming organization open to all women in our hometown.

We believe that expanding our local economy with the inclusion of women brings a collaboration to the forefront that only pushes our organizations and our businesses forward. More than ever, women are coming together to support one another and lift each other up. LGL is proud to be an integral part of this movement. We are eager to continue to cover Granbury WIB events and publish editorials that spotlight our extraordinary women in business.

Stay up to date for upcoming events!
