    The Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with our sponsors are pleased to present our next Women in Leadership Lecture, Afternoon Tea. 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 July 24th, 2018 we will welcome guests to a 3:00 p.m. social hour to kick off a garden tea party at Shorty's Garden Center. Please fill a purse with and bring donations of unopened boxes or bags of feminine hygiene products to benefit Every28Days and Share.

    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.
