Free Event: A Powerful Women’s Empowerment Series Returns

Local, Global & Me, a Women’s Empowerment Series focused on investing in women to build strong communities, networks and connections. (We wrote about the last event, which was a fantastic and delicious time.)

Now, the popular series returns in three new parts, each with a specific emphasis on empowering women through shared stories and experiences. Hosted by Bank of America and Orange County United Way, the 2019 series will again bring together influential women in business and highlight the power women have to positively impact their communities, both locally and on a global scale.

The first free installment of the 2019 series kicks off Wednesday, April 24 with a special presentation about how practicing mindfulness is an essential tool that can inform and enhance our impact within our local communities.

It will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Lincoln Experience Center at Fashion Island (139 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, CA 92660).

Martha Wooding, Mindfulness Coach & Senior Investment Banker, Bank of America, will share insights on the many workplace benefits of mindfulness, as well as ways women can apply mindfulness practices to their personal lives and in our communities.

Martha Daniel, President & CEO of Information Management Resources, Inc., will moderate the discussion and Orange County United Way will provide an update on how to get more involved in solving some of O.C.’s biggest challenges.

The event is free to attend and anyone wishing to join the women’s empowerment fun need only RSVP to Amanda Hastings at or (949) 263-6141.
