Communities across the U.S. and around the world will celebrate International Women’s Day March 8, and a special event is being planned for Edmonds: a networking lunch at 190 Sunset.
Edmonds resident Alicia Crank — who also serves as corporate relations officer for YWCA Seattle/King/Snohomish — has organized a 90-minute networking “lunch and learn” session where women who live and/or work in Edmonds are invited to connect and engage in conversation.
Featured speaker is Danielle Hill, chief operating officer of The Riveter, which provides co-working space and online collaboration opportunities for entrepreneurs, remote workers and freelancers.
Cost of the lunch is $25 and space is limited. You can register here.
Later that evening, Crank is joining forces with local women to present a screening of the new female superhero movie, Captain Marvel, which debuting in theaters on International Women’s Day. (You can hear from the Women of Marvel by clicking here).
The special screening of the movie at Regal Cinemas Thornton Place in North Seattle, is just for women and high school girls, and is presented in partnership with the Edmonds School District. There will also have a short panel discussion featuring local women leaders — including My Edmonds News Publisher Teresa Wippel — before the movie starts. Learn more about the movie screening here.
