Join WWLI for a Luncheon on October 16 with Meredith Walker, former Head of Talent at SNL!
If we want to lead a life we find more interesting; one based on our truest and most honest self, we will first have to dare to embrace our individuality. If we continually give in to what the world tells us to do and be, we will never discover the person we could be and never achieve something more substantial. That “something more” is within each of us. WWLI invites you to join us for our upcoming Luncheon, Change the World By Being Yourself!, featuring Meredith Walker, who is Executive Director of Amy Poehler's Smart Girls and the former Head of Talent at SNL. WWLI is extending it's member pricing to WIT members this luncheon, happening Tuesday, October 17th from 11am - 2pm at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna, VA. Download the Event Brochure for more information and to obtain your discount code!
