Dear FWA Members, Sponsors and Supporters,
I am delighted to announce several exciting new initiatives, with respect to upcoming events.
First, I am proud to announce that the FWA will utilize a percentage of proceeds from several upcoming “fashion” events to benefit the FWA Lenore C. Albom Microfinance Giving Program.
Please join me, our Executive Director Ria Davis, and the FWA Perspectives Committee, co-chaired by Danielle Jarnot and Ellen Perlstein, to hear from Lafayette148’s CEO & Co-Founder Deirdre Quinn. She and her team are offering FWA an exclusive evening of luxury shopping and philanthropy at its flagship store on October 4th. Discover the Lafayette 148 New York Fall Collection, network in an innovative setting and help support the FWA and its Microfinance Giving Program.
Lafayette 148 New York has generously offered a 10% discount on purchases and a 10% donation to support the FWA Lenore C. Albom Microfinance Giving Program.
Secondly, as you may know, our President Circle corporate sponsors have enjoyed special coaching events for their high-achieving “Pacesetters.” Given the strong level of interest in these events, we plan to bring several of these marquee events to a wider FWA audience.
I am proud to announce the first in the series – look for a “Pacesetters” event with the highly-acclaimed coach, Sam Christensen, later this month.
In closing, I want to thank everyone for a successful kick-off event for our MUFG Mentoring program at Seton Hall. The mentees heard inspiring words from a cadre of impressive mentors, as well as from Dean Joyce Strawser of Seton Hall and Marguerita Courtney, the Managing Director of Global Learning with MUFG.
We’ll share additional details of our mentoring programs in upcoming newsletters. In the meantime, please stay informed, and visit our website, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and don’t forget to check out our FWA Forbes supplement which is on newsstands now.
