Silent Auction: At the very first IWL, we awarded one $1,000 scholarship with the donation coming from Dr. Judith J Carrier, former President of TTC-SE and the first-ever Chairwoman of the Chamber Board of Directors. That has grown significantly over the years thanks to our Silent Auction and Bling Boxes (more details on those below). 100% of the Silent Auction net proceeds go towards the Dr. Judith J Carrier Scholarship Program. If you would like to donate an experience or item, please reach out to our Silent Auction Chair, Kelly Geer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We need all experiences and items donated by Friday, February 23.
Bling Boxes: When you purchase a $50 Bling Box, you help send young women to the colleges in our community – UTA and TCC-SE. Just as above, 100% of the net proceeds go toward the Dr. Judith J Carrier Scholarship Program. MORE DETAILS COMING SOON.
Hero & Rising Star Awards: The Hero & Rising Star Awards are the most prestigious awards granted under the Women’s Alliance, recognizing women who are the very definition of a “servant leader”. These recipients continually prioritize their commitment to their community by paving the way for others to create change while leaving a legacy. To learn more about the Hero and Rising Awards and their past recipients, click here. NOMINATIONS WILL OPEN SOON. STAY TUNED.
Scholarships: The Dr. Judith J. Carrier Scholarship Program is dedicated to cultivating and developing the next generation of women leaders by awarding over $19,000 in scholarships this year. Scholarship applications CLOSE on November 26. Learn More.
Woman-Owned Small Business Grant: Two small business grants are awarded to local female entrepreneurs each year. Nomination CLOSE on December 15. Learn More.
Optional Professional Development: Each year, we provide an optional professional development for our IWL attendees to get the most out of their experience. Our panel will be announced soon! The session has a maximum capacity of 150 attendees. Make sure to reserve your seat! There is a separate fee of $20 per attendee, register here. You can only attend this session if you are attending the full luncheon.
