Sterling Women provides a new networking opportunity for business women in Northern Virginia and beyond.  Each month we invite a successful business woman located in Loudoun County to speak to our audience about her accomplishments.

The quality of our speakers and the interest from our sponsors has boosted the overwhelming popularity of our new organization.  While we plan to honor the program’s initial intent and continue to bring Sterling professionals together, we want to also encourage the monthly gathering of business women from across Loudoun, as well as outside its borders.  Ultimately we will all benefit!

Luncheon Location and Time:
