The first Los Angeles chapter launched in 1996. This is the fourth chapter in the Greater Los Angeles area. Local WPO Chapters are coordinated by a professional facilitator and meet monthly to share business expertise and experience in a confidential setting. Members in noncompetitive businesses tap into the collective wisdom of their peers to advance their business success.
Members credit WPO as an important resource: 82% believe that the organization has helped them manage their business concerns; 77% of them have established business opportunities with each other; and 67% have seen a growth in their business since they joined the organization.
Lakeisha Singletary will be heading the chapter as chair. She is the CEO of Elevate Digital Media (EDM) Inc. Using strategic and innovative technology solutions, Elevate Digital Media helps government agencies, nonprofits, and businesses accomplish their tech and digital media goals. They execute this through trainings, algorithm planning, market research, software development, and social media marketing for their clients. Lakeisha is eager to expand the WPO footprint in Southern California.
“While the economic climate surrounding the pandemic has been a constant challenge this past year, there are regions of business growth in certain key sectors,” said Camille Burns, WPO Chief Executive Officer. “Los Angeles has been a bright spot for us and for women entrepreneurs in general. I am very pleased to expand our presence in the L.A. area via the launch of a virtual chapter, where successful entrepreneurs use the power of peer learning to take their businesses to the next level.”
WPO membership requires annual revenue of at least $2 million ($1 million for service-based companies) and an ownership interest in the company.
