AWE DC is heading into the summer with yet another amazing meeting under it’s belt. We had the pleasure of having Joy Kingsley-Ibeh, owner of Kingsley Model + Talent Management, join us as guest speaker. Joy shared her amazing success story with us; the highs and the lows. She talk about not being afraid to use and accept the help of your community and resources around us. Her story of family death, insecurities, failures and accomplishments opened up the room for an intimate, supportive and inspirational discussion.
Not only did we have an amazing guest speaker this month, AWE DC collaborated with Kimberly Ross. Supporting women and fostering healthy relationships among women is one of our greatest goals. Kimberly created a “Give Together” for our members to shop, with 10% of sales donated to the charity of our choice.
We chose the Washington Area Women’s Foundation. WAWF “works to build opportunities with and for young women and girls." Without organizations like WAWF, they would not know life outside of their neighborhoods or homes. They may not have the opportunity to see what success looks like. They may not have the opportunity to have positive female role models. We all know how extremely instrumental organizations such as WAWF are to the success of young women and girls. As an added bonus, WAWF was able to send a representative, Linda Paulson.
AWE DC would like to send a huge thank you to all that made June so amazing for us. “Behind Every Successful Woman Is A Tribe of Other Successful Women!”
