We found the only 50 incredible women in LA who weren't on vacation in early August and gathered them for a conversation with our founders, Lizzie Francis & Kara Weber, then a powerful give/get session at The Riveter in West LA.
It was clear that per The Riveter's tagline, creativity met ambition on this night.
Soon after the gathering, which included some non-members as well as certified Angels, Jenny Connelly, SVP Product at Penske Media, wrote, "I wanted to let you know that two women took me up on my offer of mentoring...rack these up under City of Angels' success stories. I'm happy to do it-- and know that in this 'pay it forward' world, some day these women or others like them will help my daughters (now 21 & 18) when they enter the workforce."
Thanks, Jenny, and all the women who joined us that sweltering evening! As always, it was magical to witness the power of women giving to and getting from a group of accomplished stars.
