Earlier this year, SRQ Magazine announced winners for the first Women in Business competition. But afterwards, something unexpected happened. We couldn’t shake the idea of recognizing the amazingly talented female business leaders in our community. Following this newly found passion and invoking a spirit of ingenuity, SRQ is pleased to bring the Women in Business concept beyond the printed page and into the flesh.

On October 23, 2014, this new initiative took shape in Sophie’s at Saks 5th Avenue’s new location in the Mall at University Town Center, where we eagerly awaited the founding class of the SRQ Women in Business Leadership Circle. Each month, this highly engaging (and did we mention they’re both lovely and fun?) group of women will be meeting for our Sophie’s Salon Series to cultivate a community of support, inspiration and mentorship for working women in Sarasota.

We are honored to the hear their stories and look forward to learning from them and working alongside the Leadership Circle throughout the year. Special thanks to Saks 5th Avenue for their sponsorship of this exciting new venture and for their incredible hospitality.
