Fifty women came together for tHRive’s “Working Women and Wine” on March 21. This sold out event allowed attendees to meet like-minded people with the same struggles and ambitions, and gain insight on how to successfully balance work and home life.
Moderated by tHRive’s event chair, Lauren Bland, this panel discussion included Amanda Jarratt, President & CEO of Franklin Southampton Economic Development, Inc.; Monique Adams, Executive Director of Angels 757; Donna Allen, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Visit Norfolk; and Sharon Fanto, Vice President of Cox Media. The panelists shared who their mentors were and how they have used their networks to advance in their careers. They offered up unique tips and tricks to managing motherhood and work, and shared how they schedule time for themselves during the week.
The discussion lasted some 45 minutes and then was open to 15 minutes of questions. The panelists and attendees stuck around afterward laughing and sharing stories.
tHRive would like to extend a huge thank you to Bluebird’s Garage for hosting the event in their thoughtfully curated studio and to Green Cat Juice Bar and Market for catering.
