Walker’s Legacy is proud to launch Mimosas and Movemakers a summer networking reception series to advance networking opportunities for multicultural women.
A recent study by the Harvard Business Review found that women who attended conferences and other networking events garnered more professional connections and had greater optimism towards the future of their careers, especially as it related to career advancement and pay raise opportunities.
The national series launched with an invitation-only program held in New Orleans on July 7 during ESSENCE Festival 2018, featuring prominent businesswomen including Brittany Packnett, Vice President of National Alliances at Teach for America, Muthoni Wambu Kraal, Vice President of National Outreach and Training at EMILY’s List and Janaye Ingram, Director of National Partnerships at Airbnb.
