Message From The President

Welcome to the Professional Women's Alliance


It is my honor and privilege to lead PWA into 2023. I am excited to serve in the role of president and I am truly grateful for the opportunity.

As we continue to overcome the challenges of the past two years, it’s important to understand we are better and stronger together. My vision for PWA is to continue to provide a space to uplift, inspire, and elevate the professional woman, allowing her to reach her highest potential.

I want to give credit to the wonderful leadership within the organization for doing a phenomenal job over the past two years implementing a new virtual platform. Now, it’s time we start a new chapter committed to creating a village: connecting and building a network of powerful professional women using connections, collaborations, and collective wisdom to lift each of us to new heights.

Our 2023 theme “Lifting as We Rise: Encourage, Empower, Elevate” embodies the organization’s culture. PWA provides leadership development opportunities, skill builder trainings, action series, and amazing professional women telling “her story” of elevation to the top of her industry.

If you are new to PWA, get involved. If you have been a member for years, get involved. The spark we need is “YOU”! We encourage you to come to events, bring a friend, join PWA’s golf league (our no-pressure/no-judgment league to improve and even acquire golf skills) or become active on any one of PWA’s impactful committees:

  • Programming
  • Mentoring
  • Marketing
  • Networking
  • Membership
  • Scholarship
  • Philanthropy
  • Fundraising

Thank you for entrusting me with the PWA presidency! Together we will rise higher.

All the Best,

Ana Stringfellow, PWA President
