A New Form of Sisterhood: Women in Media Mentoring Initiative
Last week, the ladies of Recess attended a celebratory cocktail reception hosted by Women in Media Mentoring Initiative (WIMMI), an organization dedicated to connecting, supporting and fostering women in the field of media, marketing and entertaiment. WIMMI was founded by Jack Myers, author and media entrepreneur, when he saw the need for women in the media industry to have a connection and gain empowerment in a common environment. Started in New York, WIMMI has grown to five chapters with the Las Vegas chapter being the newest.
Adopting the Lean In philosophy, WIMMI encourages women to empower themselves by making those valuable relationships, staying connected and supporting one another. With over 1500 members, WIMMI is open to all women in media and Recess is more than happy to be a part of this community.
The event was held at the Amanda Harris Gallery and The Lady Silva located Downtown. We loved the atmosphere at The Lady Silva and I loved the books (yes, I’m a book nerd).
Afterwards, the ladies of Recess went on to have cocktails and appetizers at Triple George. If you haven’t been there, we suggest you go and try the Baked Goat Cheese Marinara. YUM.
