3rd Annual Women's Leadership & Networking Day a Success!

On Friday, May 2, 2014, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley hosted its 3rd Annual Women’s Leadership and Networking Day. This day-long inspirational conference was held at Twin Palms Restaurant and Lounge in Pasadena. The Women’s Leadership and Networking Day provided the opportunity to hear from seven unique women who have followed their passions and utilized their strengths to reach their professional goals.

This event, produced by the YWCA’s Women’s Leadership & Networking Day committee, was chaired by Paula Stamp and Kelsey Szamet. This event served as a means of sharing wisdom and advice to empower women in their careers and personal life, as well as an opportunity to make professional connections with other women in a variety of fields.

“The energy in the room was palpable as 100 women came together to share, inspire and empower each other,” said Sharalyn Hamilton, Executive Director.

The event brought together over 100 women of all ages and stages of their professional lives: career women, retired women, young professionals, and students. Guests attending were able to network and share personal stories and insight about their varied career fields and future goals.

Thank you to our amazing guest speakers: Ursula Hyman, Rosemarie Pilpa, Melody Godfred, Phlunte Riddle, Michele Martinez, and Lilli Cloud.

We also extend our sincere thanks to our committed sponsors: PCL Construction, Gruen Associates, The Law Office of Angeline Chen, Salted Stone, Carmen Vargas & Christopher Garrido, Ellen’s Silkscreening, Pasadena Magazine, and Business Life Magazine.  Special thanks to Cam Sanders, our event photographer.
