DARIEN, Conn. -- The YWCA Darien/Norwalk hosted a cocktail party on March 5 for the Working Mom's Network, which is expanding and will now be called the YW Network of Working Women.
Those who attended learned about the network and donated business attire and accessories as part of a clothing drive on behalf of Dress for Success' Bridgeport affiliate.
"We foster a fun and supportive atmosphere for women who work outside of the home" said board member and group leader Rachel Martin. "Events like these make it easy to meet new people and talk about the kinds of issues we face as working women -- job security, child-care challenges, and of course the ever elusive work-life balance."
The Network of Working Women accommodates busy workweek schedules by planning events on weeknights or weekends, including social and networking events, play dates for smaller children, and outings for older children, representatives said.
"Another hallmark of the program is the outstanding YW NOWW membership-based email group, which gives users an easy place to exchange useful information and get recommendations on everyday things from household repairs to doctors and daycare, and even homework advice for their children," representatives said.
