What we're about

Women's Mentoring Network and Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County have joined forces to present:

Women Inspiring Women: A Speaker Series of Success!

This fun after-work series will feature successful women sharing their personal stories of accomplishment, light appetizers, a networking portion, and drinks! All at the beautiful Franklin Street Works Art Gallery.

The first speaker is State Representative Caroline Simmons, who represents the 144th District in Stamford, Connecticut, and serves as the House Chair of the Commerce Committee. Caroline graduated from Harvard, and worked for the Women’s Business Development Council in Stamford where she helped provide entrepreneurial, financial, and professional development training programs for women in CT. Previously, Caroline worked at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for four and a half years, and interned at the U.S. Department of State for the Middle East Partnership Initiative within the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, where she assisted with economic empowerment programs in the Middle East.

A suggested donation of $25 is requested advance or at the door. All proceeds benefit Women's Mentoring Network and Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County.

See you there!
