“The goal of Provident4Women is to empower and inspire women by sharing insights, tips and life stories,” said Diana Braga, Public Relations Manager, Provident Bank. “The attendance of last spring’s workshop showed us the desire of those attendees to grow the program, so we have expanded the number of events and the types of programming to include workshops on how millennials can be and remain financially healthy as well as share skills that are valuable to business owners.”

Launched in 2014, Provident4Women was created as a place for women to come together, share wisdom and better their collective lives. The program combines an online presence and offline workshop and networking events. In March 2015, Provident4Women held its first workshop, Grow Your Business. The inaugural event was a major success and featured four Provident Bank experts who spoke on business growth from the perspectives of communications, branding and social media.
