Join Us: WLMA Nonprofit Expo

27 Jul

Have you been wanting to learn how to get involved with EWI or are you looking for opportunities to serve on a board? EWI is participating in the Women’s Leadership and Mentoring Alliance expo on September 14th. This is a perfect opportunity for women looking for more ways to get involved with local nonprofits.

We hope to see you there!

From the WLMA website:

Women represent 48% of the workforce, but comprise only 15% of the nation’s boards of directors. WLMA is working to change that and is hosting a special Fall event, bringing together WLMA women with leaders of local and national non-profit organizations who are interested in increasing involvement within their organizations, including seeking qualified candidates for their board of directors.

Please join us for a short panel discussion on how to navigate non-profit board service, followed by an intimate meet and greet with representatives from participating non-profit organizations at the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, home of the historic National Women’s Party. The non-profits will be located throughout the house in an expo-style forum for you to meet and learn more about the organizations and their volunteer needs.
