The Holidays are just around the corner and you don’t want to miss this year’s Holiday Social. Our theme this year is BRAVE YOUR BRAND. We have invited two very special speakers to inspire us on authentically crafting and living our personal brand. We are also supporting Women of the World non-profit, which provides hope, support, supplies, education, and positivity to hundreds of women refugees and their families. So come be inspired, give back, and as always, we will have great entertainment by The Scarlet Foxx, amazing food, happy hour drinks and a very festive atmosphere to network and kick off the new year!

Please support donations for Women of the World:

During times of war, women endure unimaginable suffering. This vulnerable group suffers tremendously and in great numbers, accounting for 4 out of 5 refugees. Despite the rising numbers of women and children seeking asylum, investment in refugees is inadequate. Only about 4 percent of overseas development assistance goes to gender equality and for every dollar of development assistance, just two cents goes to girls. It’s essential to give women refugees and their families a place to go, a future to grab hold of, and a way to become productive members in the community. You can transform lives when you become a supporter of Women of the World today.
