(September 29, 2004 – October 1, 2014) – President and CEO, Angela Chrysler, along with approximately 25 female direct selling representatives came together by invite only for the fourth annual Direct Selling Women’s Leadership Summit. Taking place at the Cosmos Club with featured meetings on Capitol Hill, these women met with members of Congress to share personal stories about how direct selling has helped them accomplish business and personal goals.
The meeting included a “Guerilla Mentoring” session that was led by Kathy Korman Frey, George Washington University Entrepreneur in Residence and CEO of the Hot Mommas Project, the world's largest women's digital case library designed to serve as role models and mentors for women around the world. This meeting challenged these women to better mentor their sales-force members and improve their everyday lives.
Next, these women attended the "Being a Washington Insider” briefing session led by Kate McAuliffe from Hogan Lovells to provide a helpful overview of how to best deliver our lobbying message on Wednesday morning.
Janet Murguia, President of The National Council on La Raza, the largest national Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, was the guest of honor at the networking dinner where she shared some inspirational words on women’s empowerment.
On Wednesday morning, these women went to Capitol Hill. Angela met with four senate offices to discuss direct selling and the difference these companies and independent representatives make on the US economy.
"The Women's DSA Leadership event is an inspiring and memorable event. It is terrific to connect & learn with other women executives. Sharing the positive message of direct selling at Capitol Hill is a wonderful aspect of this event," Angela says. The Direct Selling Women’s Leadership Summit was an overall success and great opportunity for women direct selling leaders to come together and grow from each other.
