Locally based Fidelity Bank is continually expanding its mission to be “Here for Good.” In 2018, the community bank launched POWER., an exclusive program for women business owners that combines financial services and support with networking opportunities, business promotion, private events, and knowledge-based learning.
“Fidelity Bank did extensive research and discovered women business owners were one of the fastest growing segments in the nation,” says Tammy O’Shea, Chief Marketing Officer. “By providing safe spaces for business growth and networking-combined with bankers who serve as POWER Partners-the program is helping this important segment to grow and prosper.”
After just two years, POWER boasts almost 1,000 members representing a diverse community of women and industries. The POWER advisory board helps guide the program and ensure it meets the community’s needs. For their work in this segment, O’Shea and Liz Broekman, Director of POWER, were named 2019 “People of the Year” by Biz New Orleans.
