We were thrilled to celebrate the launch of four new AWE chapters this fall around the DC area, in addition to holding our monthly AWE Arlington meetings in September — thank you Michelle Sagatov for hosting in your gorgeous home and Courtney Reeve Of Aspire! Afterschool for speaking; and in October, thanks to Arlington Independent Media (home of the AWE Show on WERA 96.7 FM) for hosting and sharing their wonderful programs with our members!
AWE Fairfax launched in September led by publicist Ashley Bernardi of Nardi Media. By her October meeting, Ashley had found a co-leader in videographer (and former colleague at ABC News in NY) Anna Devalos. They now have two meetings under their belts and a group of awesome women excited to get together monthly to connect, collaborate and support one another.
The launches of AWE Bethesda Chevy Chase, AWE DC and AWE Vienna Tysons quickly followed last month, with Jennefer Witter, Founder & CEO of the Boreland Group P.R. at the helm of BCC; fashion stylist and blogger Tee Jackson leading DC; and writer, blogger and podcaster Sarah Bagley leading Vienna Tysons. Thank you ladies for stepping up to provide this much-needed opportunity for the women entrepreneurs in your communities!
As we say all the time, the story of women not supporting each other is a false narrative. AWE is here to prove that when we band together, refer each other, partner on projects and simply cheer one another on, we all rise and grow stronger together. Get on the mailing list and join one of our new chapters via the Chapters link above, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
