A Vision of Empowerment! Meet Chapter President Lauren-Nikai Harry
Hello! My name is Lauren-Nikai Harry. I am elated to introduce myself as the President of the Washington, DC Chapter of NAPW. Leading the women of the Nation’s Capital is an honor and privilege. With more than 2,500 registered women in this area, the opportunities for us to lead, serve and impact our communities are tremendous and I look forward to serving the needs of our women to continue to produce excellence.
My vision is to empower individuals to live to their fullest potential. As the Founder and CEO of KlickConsulting, LLC. I assist business owners in developing winning strategies that help build prosperity. Klick creates a shift in the landscape of traditional consulting and management services to provide unique solutions and opportunities that yield tremendous results and ultimately make ideas click.
I decided to join NAPW in November, 2014. It was the end of the first year with my company and at that time, I was really looking for other opportunities to connect with other business owners in the area. I knew I wanted to take on my business full-time at some point and I thought NAPW would be a great platform to provide exposure to women that I can admire and respect.
It was about two years later when I became Chapter President. I believe in the mission of NAPW and I wanted to be able to use my skills to deliver a better experience for the women in this area. This was a great leadership opportunity to help grow the Chapter and get more members involved on the local level.
NAPW has expanded my network both professionally and personally. I have been able to make great contacts and friendships. NAPW has also strengthened my leadership skills and pushed me to continue to strive for excellence.
Being Chapter President for the Washington, DC Chapter has primarily been a rewarding experience. It almost feels like an extension of my business, and as we are starting to gain more consistency with the many planned activities, it is such a reward to see the progress and produce results. It has been a challenge to get things started, re-branding the Chapter and gaining involvement from some members who haven’t been active in a while, but we look forward to working through those challenges and creating a phenomenal Chapter.
The Washington, DC Chapter has provided an opportunity for local women to connect in a different way. NAPW is a nice mixture of personal and professional development which is a balance that is difficult to catch in this area.
