On May 6 and 7 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., the Center for Women’s Business Research is holding a symposium called Research to Roadmap: Accelerating the Growth of Businesses Owned by Women of Color (Full disclosure: I serve on the center’s advisory board and as chair of the Social Media Executive Committee).
You simply cannot imagine how close this event is to my heart. Finally, an organization has decided to put its money where its mouth is and deliver the results of a significant study about businesses owned by women of color directly to the legislators on Capitol Hill. The center’s survey results have finally put statistical relevance to the challenge of the growth of these companies. Now maybe someone will listen.
That said, we need women bloggers to cover the event. I have arranged for a bloghaus–you might know this as a blogger’s bullpen–at the event, and we need the right women bloggers to be present to live blog.
The bloggers will be responsible for getting themselves to Washington, D.C., but I have secured complimentary registration for all live bloggers who want to attend. The people who are attending this symposium are of note. Bloggers who want interviews? Consider it done. Bloggers will also get first access to *the* study results that have been under moratorium for at least the past month.
Please help me use the power of social media to get women bloggers on site at this event. Let’s show them what social media is all about. Feel free to blog about this, podcast about this, Twitter it, post it in community forums and shout it from the rafters.
Ask all interested parties to send me an e-mail LWest [at] xynoMedia [dot] com with the subject “CfWBR May,” with a link to their blog. Then I will send them the registration link and code. Easy, peasy.
I thank you for your support. It takes a village.
