Yes, networking for a cause. That’s exactly what roughly 25 of us did this week at the NYC Chapter’s National Association of Professional Women’s (NAPW) Fundraiser for Save a Child. For those unfamiliar with NAPW, it’s an exclusive network that offers professional women a platform to interact, exchange ideas, educate and empower.
The event, co-sponsored by Save a Child Inc., a nonprofit organization that supports disadvantaged children in India through long-term sponsorship, was hosted by organization founder Louise Nicholson. Louise invited us all to her home and as we sat on her gorgeous terrace with amazing views of Midtown and a beautiful sunset, she shared her personal passion and dedication to the cause she’s so intimately involved with.
We also heard from NAPW member, Rekha Krishnamurthi, creative director of Divine NY & Co., who shared her challenges and successes in launching her own luxury lifestyle brand, heavily inspired by the bright, colorful clothing, interesting patterns, and unique color combinations recognized in the Indian heritage.
The evening was a good balance of presentations, networking and fun! The next NAPW chapter event, “The Fearless Fish out Of Water: 5 Steps to Courageous Leadership,” will be hosted at TheLadders. Interested in attending? Become an NAPW member today!
