WOMEN WHO LUNCH NY
Women Who Lunch (WWL) is on a mission to connect women so that they can share ideas and empower each generation to teach the other. On Friday, December 4, 2015 women will gather in New York under the monthly theme, “The Road to Personal Transformation – And the Roadblocks Along the Way”. Nectar News conducted an interview with Vicki Koenig, coordinator of the WWL Hudson Valley group to learn more about the success of the event in that area.
NN: How did Women Who Lunch Hudson Valley begin ?
VK: The Florence Belsky Charitable Foundation hosts Women Who Lunch events in a handful of different cities including New York City, Boston, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. About a year and a half ago, Melissa Gibson and I got together and brainstormed about having an event in the Hudson Valley. We started in September 2014 and have had six events thus far where women share ideas and stories in a meaningful way over food. Some people have received new clients, lots of office space has been secured at these meetings.. whether it’s political, grant funding we realize that it’s who you know a lot of times. WWL opens the doors for relationship building.
NN: What is expected of the women who attend the WWL in the Hudson Valley ?
VK: At the beginning of each WWL event in the Hudson Valley I always try to express that women network differently, then men. Women hear about the abilities of other women and often respond by saying “my friend would love to connect with you because she’s trying to do…”. I ask the ladies to truly connect with each other and connect someone to somebody else who may benefit. Thankfully, through the Women Who Lunch event we are able to connect people in need of services.
WWL in all of the foundation’s locations is for women seeking an opportunity to connect and share with other women both on a personal level and a professional level.
On December 4th, Women Who Lunch in New York will discuss roadblocks that hinder happiness and purpose. Seating is limited to the first 30 women. NYC Women Who Lunch facilitators for December are Susan Kelley, Annette Candido, Esq. and Kate Crow.
