Our mission is to increase female professional representation and visibility through expansive networking opportunities and collaborative fundraising.




In partnership with Safe Harbor Crisis Center, the Every Woman a Leader (EWAL) initiative seeks to increase female professional representation and visibility through expansive networking opportunities and collaborative fundraising. RSVP here to join Safe Harbor and EWAL as we host our first-ever, 200-300 person, meta-networking event on Saturday, February 5th, 2022 at 7 p.m.
