This community started when Wendy Parslow, SVWL founder, posted on a local Facebook page asking whether other local women leaders were interested in finding ways to connect. Interest and feedback for a community exceeded her expectations, and she started building a community and events with support from local businesses and personal donations.
“We have a powerful force of local women leaders in our community who represent a mix of industries, business sizes and types (including local business owners, entrepreneurs, large corporations and smaller companies), and experience (end-career, mid-career, aspiring),” said Parslow. “We’re so excited about how this group has come together and how we’re applying our strengths and specialties to inspire one another and build a much-needed local network of inspirational women.”
In the past year, SVWL has connected with 200+ local women and hosted 15 events, including Connection Gatherings, workshops, virtual coffee chats, book clubs, and new mom meet-ups. It’s inspired new ideas and professional development and is a great way to network with other incredible local women.
