Aug. 17, 2005: Women's Chamber Of Commerce Offers Online Learning

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) has launched an online education resource - the USWCC University of Learning - designed to help women grow their business acumen, leadership skills, and economic opportunities. According to the organization, the USWCC University of Learning offers no- or low-cost virtual classroom learning; an easy-to-use registration process for classes and meetings; and access to archive articles, white papers, message boards, meetings, and discussions.

"Business owners and career professionals have schedules that often don't allow them to enroll in traditional and even nontraditional educational programs," said Margot Dorfman, CEO of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. "Family, business, job, and personal commitments keep us from pursuing or finishing a degree - or enrolling in a class that will help us expand our business skills - or even meeting up with a group of contemporaries who share our interests, needs, and aspirations.

"Our new 'campus' - because it's as close and accessible as a personal computer - enables us to bring advanced knowledge, leadership, and economic development opportunities to women everywhere," Dorfman added.

The USWCC University of Learning is organized into five schools of emphasis: School of Business Growth; School of Government Contracting; School of Politics and Policy; School of Career & Leadership; and School of Financial Leadership. Registered students may focus on classes, meetings, and resources within one school, or overlap and intertwine their learning.
