“Women make up more than 45 percent of the U.S. workforce and lead less than twenty Fortune 500 companies. Moreover, women-owned businesses are growing at a faster rate than any other small business owner segment yet continue to face challenges including access to capital, networking and financing. Nonetheless, there are countless women whose leadership skills, persistence and hard-won successes have set new standards for women everywhere and I wanted to create an event to celebrate our success and encourage women to “push the envelope” to excel and also expand their networks across industries and experience levels” said Sharon Jarrett, event producer and President and CEO of Jarrett Affairs & Productions, LLC, a full service event management & PR firm located in Bowie, MD and servicing clients throughout the United States.
Pretty in Pinstripes – The 2009 Power Luncheon will soon become the premier event held annually during National Women’s History Month. In addition, each year a charitable partner will be showcased and will receive a donation from the net proceeds of the event. This year’s charitable partner is All Shades of Pink, a local 501 c(3) organization created to assist women diagnosed with breast cancer.
