The National Association of Women Business Owners Greater Detroit Chapter (NAWBO-GDC) launched their 5th annual 2017 Women on Board Cruise on Thursday, August 3, held aboard The Ovation luxury yacht.
The 2017 Women on Board Cruise provided networking opportunities with NAWBO members and non-members alike from the Greater Detroit business community. The evening’s program included a panel discussion with Greater Detroit-area women political influencers and leaders: Jessica Cooper, Oakland County Prosecutor, Sarah Hubbard, a legislative strategist and Principal at Acuitas and Paula D. Cunningham, AARP Michigan State Director. Emmy-award winning broadcast journalist Paula Tutman served as the evening’s Captain of Ceremonies.
The theme for the evening was “Women Influencing Politics.” The program explored and celebrated women’s political past, present and future. Its focus relays their value within the political arena, how we can make a difference, and how our voices, individually and collectively, are powerful.
