Spring has sprung and WWPR is in full bloom!

We’re finally getting some warm weather in the DMV and WWPR is bringing you even more to celebrate with upcoming events to help you give back to the local community, connect with experts in the field, and applaud emerging leaders. Here are just a few:

Give Back for National Volunteer Month: Want to build your resume and also help local nonprofits get the word out on the phenomenal work they’re doing to support women and children in the DC area? Join us on Tuesday, April 24 at Hager Sharp for a chance to “speed date” with representatives from organizations including the Homeless Children’s Playtime Project, Mamatoto, and Mary’s Center. Also, this event is FREE for both members and non-members.

Emerging Leaders Awards: There are so many young, female communicators in our area who are making waves in the industry and we’ll be shining a spotlight on some of them at our 9th Annual Emerging Leaders Awards. Come christen the new WeWork space on the Capitol Waterfront and toast some of DC’s rising stars on Tuesday, May 15. Early-bird registration is now open, so register today!

Rosé All Day (and Night): Grab a glass and something to snack on while you get to know our 2018 Board and network with fellow communicators. Our quarterly happy hour is in the works, so look out for more info in the next few weeks. Wine. Apps. Rooftop views. You don’t want to miss this…

Hope to see many of you at one or more of our future events and, in the meantime, enjoy the sunshine!
