IAEE women are making an impact not only in business but in our communities. We believe showing gratitude is being thankful for our industry and IAEE women are committed to returning that kindness to others who are less fortunate.
For 2023, we reached for the stars by supporting HER Resiliency Center as WLF attendees came together, along with our industry, to support their focus of Empowering Women and Changing Lives, in the Washington region. WLF attendees also put together 125 care-packets onsite at the WLF event. To date, we raised over $1580 and there’s still time to donate!
In 2022, we supported The SOFEI Group (Starting Over for Economic Independence). With the amazing support of our attendees and industry, IAEE WLF, contributed over $2575 for this special organization, giving back to the local community.
In 2021, attendees once again gave back to the local community, this time in the city of Baltimore supporting B & Dee’s Baltimore Love. Attendees worked together to create over 350 snack care packages to be provided at the September Lunch Patrol program in various Baltimore communities. Along with attendees and other amazing people from our industry, we were able to provide $1,400 in monetary donations to assist them with future programs and in providing life sustaining resources to its most vulnerable neighborhoods in need of help.
