The Shop! Women’s League is a community whose members come together to gain career development and pursue growth opportunities while being supported and mentored by other experienced professionals.

Our aim is to bring businesswomen together from all aspects of the in-store merchandising and retail environments industry to help them grow as they face new challenges concurrent with the changes in their jobs or in the business world. We feel empowerment can manifest itself through education. The Shop! Women’s League is focused on providing a supportive learning environment to help members take the steps that enable them to realize their full potential and gain maximum career growth.

How Do I Join?

The Women’s League is a Shop!-supported group that is open to anyone in the industry. A volunteer governing board plans events that are open to all interested parties. Content is aimed at supporting our mission to empower and educate women in the industry. Some events may require a fee to attend.
