A Nod to All the Awesome People We’re Meeting!

21 May

The Incredible Women at the IRC, with EWI’s Jami McDowell
(Community Partnerships Intern, fourth from right, top row) and
Mary Louise Marino (Outreach & Operations Manager, third from left, top row).

The EWI calendar has been full of opportunity with community partners for info sessions, marketplaces, speaking engagements, outreach exhibits, and home parties. We are thrilled to be there for every single one of them. We get to meet the most wonderful people – many doing truly meaningful work, others willing to share their talents and expertise in volunteering with us, and still others striving for better livelihoods for themselves and families.

A huge thank you and warm shout out to Melissa, Erica and Jaclyn at the International Rescue Committee (IRC) for inviting us to their Job Fair, Info Session, and upcoming World Refugee Day; Elizabeth Bruce and Giselle Cohen at Centro Nia Family Center; Hoda Fahmy at the Muslim Community Center’s Modest Beauty Day event; Ashley Lawson with DC+acumen, Nina Golding at Interfaith Works, Nancy Stark for the WVEC Conference at Capital One, and Synthia Woodcock-Dang and Rosalie Smith for hosting the most lovely home parties.

We love getting out and about and meeting new people. Do you know people or organizations that you think we should be in contact with? Are there any immigrant or low-income in your group that have passion, determination and a business idea? Drop us a note. We’d love to hear from you.
