2nd Annual Live Big

With the leadership of Board Member Debra Beinstein and the co-sponsorship of Leslie Smith, we held the 2nd annual Live Big event on Thursday, October 22nd at the Saddle and Cycle Club. The event was created as a way for our older female matches to have the opportunity to speak with an empowering group of professional women. Matches had the opportunity to ask questions about mentorship, personal experiences, advice on choosing a career, and how to position themselves for success.

Walking around the room, one could hear in depth stories, personal experiences, and lots of laughter. The night was a success with the intent of setting up our matches to meet their fullest potentials and follow their passions. As a token of appreciation each match also received “ Tea for Two” at the Drake Hotel to continue further dialogue and reflect on a memorable experience.
