Speaker: Jennifer Dreyfuss will speak on How to solve poverty and hunger on the Eastside.
Jennifer is a Development Officer in Community Engagement at Hopelink, a Redmond based non-profit that is working to end poverty in North and East King County. “I graduated from Seattle Pacific University in 2013 with a degree in Communications and always knew that helping people and making an impact was something I wanted to do in my career. I worked my way through college - interning in broadcasting as well as local television news. After graduating college, I volunteered for Hopelink at Avondale Park and that’s where the opportunity to work with this amazing agency presented itself and I felt in my heart that it was something I couldn’t turn down.”
Welcome to Eastside Business and Professional Women (BPW). BPW was founded in 1919 at the request of the US President to determine what professional women’s resources were available to aid in the war effort of WWI. It was the first organization in the United States promoting equity for women through advocacy, education, and information. Today it has the largest and most extensive women’s resource library in the country; a library Congress uses on a regular basis along with testimonies from BPW USA Foundation on issues affecting women and families.
As a member of BPW you have the opportunity to network with members around the state and in their local area, listen to enthusiastic and diverse speakers, participate in leadership training and individual development programs, become a leader or speaker within PBW, help other women to help themselves, learn about the politics that affect your business and personal life, and develop lasting friendships. BPW is an organization of women helping women whenever possible.
