Women who rise to the top of their field typically say that a strong professional network is integral to their success. Yet with all the opportunities to meet-and-greet or link up online, many of the connections we make don’t go beyond the superficial. So how do you cultivate meaningful connections?
At PWA we believe that long-lasting relationships happen through repeated face-to-face interactions over time. Along the way we often discover that a fellow member has resources or expertise that we (or the people we care about) can benefit from. And that circle of resources is an asset for any professional woman.
To help us continue building those valuable relationships, PWA is hosting our ever-popular annual Cultivating Connections event – this time in a Happy Hour time slot that lets us continue the fun even after the official event wraps up.
Join us at Maggiano’s Little Italy (off Brentwood just north of I-64) for hors d’ourves, wine and a speed-dating style opportunity to become better acquainted with your PWA sisters.
Feel free to invite a friend, co-worker or a young associate you know!
