Empowerment Workshops

Sister Sky Inc.’s #nativeSBA training team has designed a completely new and culturally appropriate curriculum for the Native Business Development Empowerment Workshops. In a virtual Empowerment Workshop, you have the opportunity to:

  • Attend a LIVE webinar or watch recorded webinars at your convenience – pick the webinar schedule that works best for you, and access online Sister Sky Inc. E-learning to complete modules at your own pace.
  • Receive real-time instruction in LIVE webinars from our #nativeSBA training team, who are experienced trainers and role models in Native business development.
  • Meet peers and colleagues, people just like you who are on the journey of founding their own small business!
  • Receive technical assistance during and after the workshop to ask questions, get support, work directly with instructors, and find business development resources in your region to move your business forward.
  • Join the nationwide #nativeSBA virtual community on social media and stay connected after your class ends!

Our Empowerment Workshops help Native business owners and entrepreneurs grow and become successful. Choose your virtual session from the schedule below.

A New Virtual Format

To make the Empowerment Workshops available to as many people in as many Native American communities as possible, we have designed online workshops that offer the best parts of online learning.

  • Live webinars – Virtual connections! Join LIVE training sessions to connect and engage with Sister Sky Inc.’s talented #nativeSBA trainers in real time. Webinar recordings will be available afterwards for sessions you can’t attend.
  • CEUs – Complete the course and earn credits from Salish Kootenai College.
