Lady Leaders

Now that you've taken the first steps towards making your own dreams come true - and if you haven't, you should really read our last blog post and get on that, sister! - it's time to celebrate other Philly phemales who have accomplished theirs. On Thursday, May 20th, from 11am-2pm, the Women's Resource Center's fourth annual Leadership Luncheon is being held at the Union League, and it's sure to be inspirational!

For four reasons why, see this year's WRC leadership award winners, who are being honored not just for their own success, but for the difference they've made in the lives of other women:

There's Andrea A. Agnew, who is the Director of Diversity and Inclusion for Comcast Cable Communications in Philadelphia, and the President of the Philadelphia Chapter of the National Association of Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC), but who also finds time to lead her daughter's Girl Scout Junior troop for special needs and volunteer with numerous Philly organizations. Then there's Natalie de Vane, Vice President of Communications for Pfizer's Specialty Care Business Unit; Mary Schafer, a dedicated mentor; and Mildred E. Bell, who is a founding member of the Coatesville Cultural Society, a member of the Terri Lynn Lokoff Foundation, The Women's Referral Network, advisory board member of Chester County Domestic Violence and board member of the Women's Resource Center, and who also established an award for other women, the SHS "Women of Beauty and Dignity" award, which honors those who have taken the time to help others during their own struggles for success. Talk about impressive!

After supporting (and being awed by!) your fellow Philly sisters, there will be time to network with some of the three-hundred-plus business leaders and decision makers slated to attend the event. And, of course, you can treat yourself for being a fabulous, inspirational, and proactive woman in your own right with some shopping at one of the many vendors selling their wares at the event, or by putting your name in the pool for any or all of the beautiful themed baskets that will be raffled off at the luncheon. So there you have it, the WRC Leadership Luncheon: step two on the road to fulfilling your dreams!
