NAPW is proud to have Bizwomen in its family of partners and we continue to collaborate on exposure of our members and events—just like the 2016 Women of Influence Luncheon.

The second annual Women of Influence Luncheon hosted by the New York Business Journal was a huge success! NAPW National Director of Chapters Louise Newsome attended the event at the Harvard Club, where 79 exceptional women in the NY area were honored and celebrated for their leadership and positive influence. Attendees learned about the importance of paying it forward and mentoring through a thought-provoking panel discussion and networked with influential women in the business community over a delicious catered lunch.
