Below, 8 female business leaders share their favorite ways to get connected right here in Phoenix.

Stay in Touch with Your Alma Mater
While it’s not technically an “official” networking group, the alumni network for the Eller College of Management (University of Arizona’s business school) is home to some of my strongest personal and professional relationships. ASU alums may hate to hear this, but throwing out a “Bear Down” to a fellow alum helps establish a common ground and opens up opportunities to help each other. Regardless of whether you’re a Wildcat or Sun Devil, some of the best networking opportunities lie with your alma mater.
KNOW – it’s so much more than a networking group. It’s a sisterhood and I’ve never been part of a more supportive group of women.
Arizona Foundation for Women
Arizona Foundation for Women. It’s a very open, inviting group that offers a ton of resources and opportunities.
My best experiences have been with SheLEADS.
iStartFirst Community that I created. Most women groups I know are competitive and sales driven, and I wanted to create a true community where women share, collaborate, and support each other.
Local First AZ
I love connecting with local professionals through Local First AZ events.
