WWLI Quarterly

WWLI members, sponsors, and guests enjoyed a variety of events in the fourth quarter of 2019 including a presentation titled 'Life Lessons in Leadership' from Deputy Director of CIA for Science and Technology Dawn Meyerriecks, cooking Spanish Tapas at Cookology with a talk by owner Maria Kopsidas, our Board Interview Panel providing Executive Members practice interviews for board seats, and more.  We closed the year with our Holiday Networking Reception where we celebrated the season wrapping gifts for families in need coordinated through Hope and A Home and Homestretch and hearing from the women's chorus group Capital Harmonia.

A selection of photos from our fourth quarter events are pictured above and the full albums are available at the links below:

Talent in Search of Board Positions

The WWLI Executive Membership program is designed to prepare and promote women to serve as leaders and as board directors. Our program increases participant’s knowledge, skills, abilities, and confidence to get seated in a board role.  

If you are part of a board with opportunities for board seats, we encourage you to check out our Executive Member profiles.  Please visit this page frequently as Executive Member profiles are added throughout the year. For contact information on these candidates, please direct inquiries to WWLI. 

Additionally, if you have a board seat available, please contact us at [email protected] as we are looking to develop a posting site for open seats. 

Thank you 2019 annual sponsors and partners for a great year!
