Attend the NAPW Networking Summit Series
Chicago, IL │Los Angeles, CA │New York, NY

We had a blast in LOS ANGELES, the second stop of our Three-City Summit Series!




The Skirball Cultural Center, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, was a fabulous venue for networking and having a great time. Attendees enjoyed a jam-packed agenda filled with tons of exciting networking opportunities, unique meet-ups outdoors under the California sun, live educational sessions, seminars and so much more. Members and guests met with exhibitors in the Career Fair Pavilion, learned about great products and services at our VIP Member Showcase and shopped ’til they dropped at the NAPW Mall, where 20 different NAPW Western Regional Chapters were represented!


Our “Whole Woman Power Panel.” moderated by NAPW President Star Jones, featured an informative Q&A session with seven distinguished industry professionals who shared their expertise on health and wellness, entrepreneurship, executive coaching, diversity and inclusion and finance.

The panel included:
Suzanne de Passe, Co-Chairman, de Passe Jones Entertainment Group; Ruth Garcia-Corrales, Western Regional Manager, NAPW; Dr. Jennifer Jones, Founder and CEO, EntrepreneurShift; Cat Lambertini, First Vice President-Wealth Management, Senior Financial Advisor, Retirement Benefits Consultant, Merrill Lynch; Lisa Rosenzweig, Director of Strategic Alliances & Partnerships, myFootpath LLC; Susan Sifuentes Trigueros, Regional Public Affairs Manager, Southern California Gas Company;  and Louise Newsome, National Director of Chapters, NAPW.

Dr. Jones—renowned success coach and psychologist—led an empowering seminar titled “Psychology of Success,” where she discussed three core lessons from neuroscience and psychology to help attendees achieve authentic success, manifest their dreams into reality and go beyond their self-imposed limits.

Dr. Jennifer Jones“When you are not in a state of joy, it means you are supposed to learn something or change something.” –Dr. Jennifer Jones

Lisa Rosenzweig from myFootpath shared information about the Operation Graduate program, now available to NAPW members. The program affords professional women and their family members the tools to complete a college degree or begin a course of study online or on campus at accredited partner universities across the country, including an NAPW Operation Graduate scholarship valued at up to $2,000.

Ruth Klein

Ruth Klein—Brand Strategist, Marketing & Publicity Guru and Productivity Coach—led the interactive Chapter Presidents and Leadership Team Workshop which was a huge success. Leaders who attended learned how to align their passions around their purpose and energized their goals to achieve defined results.


“Photos For Philanthropy” inspired the afternoon. For $20, attendees were invited to take a professional photo with NAPW President and Event Host, Star Jones. Proceeds were donated to the NAPW Foundation’s four philanthropic partners: the American Heart Association, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Dress for Success and Girls Inc.
With your help, we raised over $1,000!

A very special thank you to our inspirational speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and the Skirball Cultural Center for their generous support. And most of all, Thank YOU for attending and allowing us to Power your World with unlimited connections and networking opportunities!
