W.net is casting a net
#dch_Women Networking in Electronic Transactions (W.net), an organization devoted to the development of women leaders in the payments industry, launched its 2010 individual giving campaign. The theme is "Strive-for-Five," in honor of the nonprofit organization's fifth anniversary.
The campaign's goal is to raise $50,000 to help W.net further its mission "to inspire and empower women in the electronic transactions industry to maximize their individual potential and position themselves for greater personal success." Donations can be made at www.w-net.biz.
Also, W.net holds Local Interest Networking Circles (LINCs) to provide networking and educational opportunities for women in payments in various U.S. locations throughout the year. Its upcoming, semi-annual Super LINC will be held April 13, 2010, the first day of the Electronic Transactions Association's Annual Meeting & Expo in Las Vegas. Interested women may register at www.w-net.biz.
In addition, the group is seeking submissions written by women in the electronic transactions industry for its quarterly W.net Woman2Woman newsletter. W.net welcomes business articles of no more than 750 words on topics of interest to women in the industry. All contributors will receive a byline. Submissions should be e-mailed to Michelle Jerome at firstname.lastname@example.org.
