HBU to Host Women in Entrepreneurship Networking Event
15000 Cubits Agency Founder Leah Faul Will Be Guest Panelist
HOUSTON, TX — The Center for Christianity in Business (CCB) will host Women in Entrepreneurship: A Faith Perspective on Friday, January 31 at 12:00 p.m. The networking luncheon and panel will take place at the Morris Cultural Arts Center and will feature a panel discussion with prominent women in business in the Houston area.
The CCB is an educational and community outreach effort with the intent of fostering the integration of Christian faith and business within the local, regional, national, and global business spheres via research, speaker series, mentoring and education. To that end, the organization regularly brings students, educators, policymakers and business professionals together in forums like this one.
Panelists slated for the event include Tina Murray, President of Mind Dance Marketing; Bonnie Helvie, Owner of Bonnie Group; Sharon Saunders, VP for Advancement and University Relations at HBU; and Leah Faul, Owner of 15000 Cubits. Topics will include challenges for female entrepreneurs, practical implementation of values systems in the workplace, and work-life balance.
Panelist Leah Faul is deeply committed to the topic to be addressed. Even her company’s namesake, a nod to Noah’s Ark, is a tribute to her high regard for aligning business vision with biblical values. “I couldn’t be more honored to be included in the Women in Entrepreneurship Panel,” Faul said. “I’m thrilled that the integration of faith and female entrepreneurism has been identified as an important talking point. The world needs more female entrepreneurs putting God at the forefront of their business decisions and professional life — and I’m so happy to be able to impart what I’ve learned to the next generation of leaders in our community.”
