Businesswomen’s Group Plans Fund-Raiser
“Businesswomen don’t have access to the same old-boys network that men do. So, women often have to prove themselves more to get to the same place,” says Wendy Fujihara Anderson, coordinator of the Oct. 10 fund-raiser benefiting the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs.
The alliance, a 3-year-old Los Angeles nonprofit group that assists women in business, will hold its fund-raising breakfast at the Westside Pavilion.
The alliance “helps women become aware of which banks are more likely to lend to them, so that an entrepreneur doesn’t have to waste her time shopping 10 banks first,” Anderson said.
Tickets are $50 each, with Rose M. Ochi, the first Asian American woman named an assistant U.S. attorney general, the scheduled speaker. Funds will go for alliance workshops and services for women. For information, call (310) 641-9110.
