A New Magazine
An exciting new venture for the PWGC is the late Spring release of the first edition of “Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast: the Magazine” This 32 page periodical is being presented by Gulf Coast business women– for business women.
The magazine will feature behind-the-scenes interviews with women who are business and community leaders around the Gulf Coast and, in time, from across the country. Additionally, articles that discuss topics of interest to women in business will be included, as well as advertisements for businesses and services that effect the lives of business women.
In addition to the printed edition, the magazine will be hosted on ISSUU.com for ongoing reference of those who prefer digital readers, or who misplace a printed edition. Advertisers will benefit from repeated viewing of their products and services in this online, archived, open-access magazine.
