Watermark Women Like Us- May 5, 2016
Wednesday, May 5 was the inaugural Watermark Women Like Us (WLU) networking event in the East Bay. With almost 40 professional women from Berkeley, Oakland, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek and other East Bay cities attending, the event was a huge success.
“Watermark already had WLU events across the Bay Area in San Francisco, South Bay and the Peninsula. East Bay was notably missing. I knew we had to find a way to bring WLU to the East Bay,” said Donahue Fitzgerald’s Director of Marketing and Watermark member Kavita Comoglio. She approached Watermark Membership Director Nida Khalil to establish an East Bay WLU and offered to host it in the firm’s Oakland office. Watermark members jumped at the opportunity to network with their peers closer to where they live and work in the East Bay. After the event, Nida commented how pleased she was by the turnout as well as the diversity of the women who attended.
The next WLU networking event will be July 6th. We look forward to seeing you again and to making new connections and friends.
Several partners and associates from Donahue Fitzgerald attended the WLU networking event, including Kristin Pace, Liz Engh, and Dawn Newton. Below are some photos from the May 5th event.
