About Us

Women Entrepreneurs of Southern Oregon (WESO) is a community of dynamic entrepreneurs helping each other achieve business goals through networking, education, and inspiration.

In 1980, WESO opened for business as one of the founding chapters of a state-wide women entrepreneurs association. After two decades of success, we gained greater independence and a stronger local identity by separating from the state association and forming Women Entrepreneurs of Southern Oregon (WESO).

Over the years we have expanded our benefits and offered more opportunities for members to network, promote their businesses, gain new customers, and develop their business skills and knowledge.

If you're not already a member, we hope you'll join us!
