When & Where
Ladies America is a national network of professional women connecting to advance one another personally and professionally, following the motto, "Women Helping Women."
Founded in 2006 in Washington, D.C., Ladies America expanded rapidly across the United States and now has chapters in LA, NYC, DC, Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, and Northern Virginia.
The group has a network of thousands of women (and men) across the country, boasts a successful national mentorship program, hosts monthlhy education events, and hosts an annual women's conference.
Ladies DC (Ladies America Founding Chapter) began as Ladies Dinner Club, a simple dinner meeting opportunity for professional women to gather outside of work and form viable relationships. Ladies America Founder, Lindsey Mask, made a personal effort to connect with professional women in a purposeful way and to combat the theory of old that women don't work together. Her goal of having a non-competitive forum for women to connect drew thousands of women to join and our motto, "women helping women", has remained steadfast since the very first Dinner Club meeting.
With backing from extensive networks of women across the country, Ladies DC organically evolved into a fully functioning organization with a national network and subsequent Boards, partnerships, sponsorships, and so much more. With the creation fo chapters across the country, Ladies America was born.
Maintaining and keeping ever at the forefront our motto "Women Helping Women," we have all been witness to the amazing transformation that occurs when women are provided an avenue to help one another in a mutually beneficial setting.
While we don't have limitations of age or profession for members, we have found that typical demographic includes women ages 23-45 with undergraduate, graduate, or Ph.D degrees. Ladies America members are successful women in a variety of industries, including business, politics, education, design, art, finance, associations, marketing and communications, law, and there are several business owners. Whether you are just joining the workforce, seeking professional advancement, or have established a thriving career, Ladies America caters to all women.
