Navigate established the Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) in order to share unique learning opportunities with our professional network; highlight individuals and businesses who are promoting and exemplifying a more diverse workforce; and provide a venue for shared ideas and experiences among the business community.
Through our own hosted events and targeted participation with external organizations, the WLN welcomes colleagues, clients, and friends of Navigate to be a part of activities that will achieve these important objectives. We want to encourage continued learning, career development, and mentoring to benefit the members of our firm as well as the greater Philadelphia community.
In line with Navigate’s significant commitment to Community Involvement, the WLN also seeks out and supports nonprofit organizations making a real impact on our community. In addition, we look forward to participating with women-focused industry and service groups. The WLN is excited to bring future learning and development opportunities to our growing network.
We hope you’ll get involved! The WLN has no official membership; we welcome all colleagues, clients, and friends of Navigate to participate. See below for what’s coming up! Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or with any questions.
