We kicked off the day at the NAPW Foundation Luncheon presented by GEICO — Delicious food, cool atmosphere and GREAT company!


Louise Newsome, NAPW National Director of Chapters and NYC Local Chapter President took the stage and thanked everyone for coming and making a donation for the NAPW Foundation’s four philanthropic partners—the American Heart Association, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Dress for Success and Girls Inc. Event Host and NAPW President Star Jones introduced Karen Burns from GEICO, the Luncheon Sponsor. She welcomed guests and spoke about GEICO’s relationship with NAPW. Donna Fielding, Division Vice President – Human Resources at ADP, introduced Keynote Speaker, Judy Smith—world-renowned Crisis Management and Public Relations Expert and the inspiration for the hit ABC drama series “Scandal.”



Thank you to all our incredible exhibitors for presenting at the Summit!
We had 25 members exhibit in our VIP Member Showcase, 20 vendors were in the NAPW Mall and 19 hiring companies took part in the Career Fair.


We got down to business at the “Whole Woman Power Panels!”
