May 2nd PWF Meeting
“Etta May”/Brenda Ferrari
Brenda Ferrari has been a professional award-winning comic for 30 years. Her credits include appearances on Oprah, HBO, Showtime and various sitcoms.
As a speaker, she reveals the woman behind the laughter. “When the other shoe drops,” is the revealing story of the struggles on her ride through life. Brenda was diagnosed at birth as severely mentally handicapped. Her abusive upbringing, navigating life with a 3rd grade reading level, plus set back after set back, as her world unfolded is “riveting.”
Brenda shows us 3 revelations she realized that kept her going. Her new techniques on how to measure where you are in your own life and career can help anyone from the drug addict to the CEO.

How PWF Partners with other Organizations in the Community
– Dreambuilders: Each year the Dreambuilder committee identifies agencies who support women who work in Lexington that are a good fit. Once an agency is selected, then the committee will work with that agency to identify items for donation and delivery of those collected items. Special events for that agency may be featured in the PWF newsletter and on the website/social marketing. That same agency may be considered for support again in three years. This practice allows PWF to support a wide range of groups who are supporting women in Lexington. Download our suggestion form here and make Dreambuilders suggestions for 2018.
– Members of other organizations are invited to Join PWF. As a member there are opportunities for sharing information about upcoming events in the newsletter as well as placing information on the Member Information Table just as members enter the room. Also as a member you or your designate can attend the monthly meeting and network with members so that they know what is coming up at your agency.
– A relatively new option is the PWF Spotlight program, where an organization sponsors a meeting and has the opportunity to speak to the group for 3 minutes before the keynote speaker. Also the Spotlight organization receives recognition leading up to the meeting in the newsletter and on the website / social marketing.
