Impactful People NW began as Impactful Women NW in 2014 as a small meet-up group for women in Vancouver, Washington. Founder and President, Erika Laws, created the group after noticing a gap in the current networking circuit. She had stumbled into the world of networking through a career change in 2013. While she was fortunate to meet many people through the existing networking events, many events required a membership in order to attend and nearly all required an out of pocket cost up front. Erika wanted something different. She enjoyed connecting and meeting with people, but she also wanted a group that not only allowed her to be social, but gave her opportunities to listen to only presentations of interest, had no formal obligation to attend, and was affordable to those just starting out in their businesses. She decided to create her own event and The Social Hour was born. We focus on Community, Growth, and Connection.
