    We all have our favorite non-profits/charities, and our December theme at WBO is giving back. Read president, Wendy Howard's article for The Networker on volunteering here.

    And our Non-Profit Luncheon is coming up on December 17.

    Another way to give back is to support the University of Maryland's Scholarship Funds. UMD is right in our back yard, and their students and programs are a huge benefit to and resource for our community. Check out their site - there are funds for Veterans, emergency aid, specific courses of study, etc.

    Anyone know a deserving woman who needs a boost in her business education? We just received notice of a new scholarship competition! They are just beginning their outreach and they wanted to start with Maryland-based schools and organizations to make sure local students have time to find the scholarship and submit an application.

    Angie Dipietro is proud to announce the first annual Angie Dipietro Women in Business Scholarship, which will provide $500 to a female student which will help further educational goals in order to create a more diverse and inclusive business community. The deadline to apply is March 1st, 2016. The applicant must be in good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.0. A 500 word essay based on this prompt: If you could see one change in gender inequality in your lifetime, what would it be, and why? How do you think this can be achieved?
