PURPOSE:

The overall purpose of Women Helping Women™ is to encourage women in the entertainment industry to think more readily about hiring, inspiring, empowering, and collaborating with each other on a more consistent basis, and to share with others, the benefit of their experiences.

This power luncheon is designed to facilitate introductions, providing attendees with an opportunity to broaden connections, and to cultivate personal relationships in a private, intimate setting. Great opportunity to learn, schmooze, connect and bond in a unique format.

The luncheon features a panel
of
prominent, accomplished...and supportive women in film, television and music, willing to give back and serve as a source of encouragement and support to other women in the entertainment industry.

In the spirit of the concept created by Sandra Lord,  some panelists have also committed to scheduling
one-on-one meetings with selected attendees, enabling them to either meet privately, shadow or "do lunch" with them.
