Allred said just because Cedar City and Iron County are considered rural areas, it doesn’t mean the business women are any less professional.
“Just because we live in a rural environment doesn’t mean we can show up not prepared and not dressed properly for a meeting,” she says. “This organization gives women tools, education and support so they can be successful in their business.”
Allred says the group is also available to women who are just starting a new business, because women in the group are able to help support them by getting the word out that there is a new business in town.
The organization holds two fundraising events each year so that it can gift scholarships to women who want to pursue business in education.
In February, the group hosts an expo for women that includes several educational classes, such as the importance of LLCs, customer service, how to beef up resumes and how to dress appropriately for business meetings. Each fall, the group hosts an event called the Pumpkin Festival, a community-based carnival.
Through these events last year, the group was able to give $4,500 in scholarships to seven Iron County high school seniors as well as a non-traditional student.
“This is a really positive organization to help benefit women,” Allred says. “It doesn’t matter where you are in your business life. All women can glean something from the group. Even if you are already a professional and know a lot, we can all learn something and network with one another.”
