Women Helping Women

Welcome to Women Helping Women. We thank you for taking the time to learn more about our award-winning program.

In 2009, our women attorneys banded together to form a women’s initiative program. What developed from those meetings was an invitation-only, after-hours networking group that integrates business development with philanthropy. Designed exclusively by women, for women, Women Helping Women was born, and we held our first Mix-and-Mingle that November. Through 2019, our annual Mix-and-Mingles brought together local women business leaders, entrepreneurs and strategic partners—weaving networking, business development and community service into a single event that benefits not only our attendees, but our communities as well. In 2021, we held our first virtual networking event in an effort to find a feasible and creative way to continue this program despite state and local restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With each event, Women Helping Women partners with not for profit organizations dedicated to helping women, or women and their children. To date, our 18 not for profit partners include such organizations as All God’s People, Family Focus' Nuestra Familia center, Jewish Child & Family Services, The Nora Project, Young Women’s Leadership Charter School and our most recent partner, Magdalene House. And we’ve collected everything from personal care necessities for homeless youth to furnishings to create a home for women who have been sexually trafficked—and from business clothing to help women veterans dress for job interviews to multicultural and diverse ability dolls for traumatized children. We showcased our 18th partner, Sista Afya, at our 2021 virtual event.

We offer a special thank you to everyone who has contributed to making our first 12 years of Women Helping Women a success, and we embrace 2022 as we continue moving forward with our programming!
