Women in Leadership Lectures, Cover of Jan/Feb Vancouver VISION Magazine
The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with our sponsors will present our inaugural Women in Leadership Lecture (WILL) Series Afternoon Tea event on Tuesday, February 27th. This series of events focuses on the female leadership in Clark County and beyond, with the goal of creating a space to cultivate and celebrate the leadership qualities of professional women committed to excellence, collaboration, and tenacity.
Event Overview and Timeline:
On April 24, 2018 we will welcome guests at 3:00 p.m. to Windy Hills Winery with a non-profit social hour to support YWCA Clark County. Please bring donations of new or gently used professional women's clothing for career-seeking women in need.
At 4:00 p.m., guests will enjoy a full afternoon tea service with specialty foods from Simply Thyme Catering and a mix of hand crafted tea prepared by Jennifer Peterson, a certified tea specialist.
During the tea, our emcee Lisa Schauer of PointNorth will welcome guests and introduce our host, Lee Rafferty. Lee will moderate between our two featured speakers, who will share their leadership experiences within seven focus areas: upbringing, education, challenges and adversity, career pathways, mentorship, passions, and life-balance. Our speakers, host, emcee, and sponsors exemplify the saying, "When there's a WILL, there's a way."
Following the afternoon tea will be a VIP reception (including a beverage) at 5:00 p.m. for an opportunity to connect with speakers and attendees.
