Share Winning Women: I Get It From My Momma

Event Details

The relationship between a mother and child can only truly be understood by mothers and their children. They can go from fighting to laughing in a second, but one thing remains constant--their unconditional love for one another. But imagine taking this sometimes tumultuous relationship into the business world.

Join us at Winning Women: I Get It From My Momma on Wednesday, May 29, 2019, for a 45-minute panel discussion followed by a 15-minute audience Q&A session with mothers who are establishing successful businesses and building empires. These women have truly figured out how to be a good mother and rockstar businesswoman. 

Winning Women, launched in 2017 by Cynthia Hellen, is a monthly event series empowering women to effect change in society at all levels: as an individual, community member, professional, student & entrepreneur. At Winning Women, women share their lessons learned to an audience that ranges from 20-60s-year-old female and males who are eager to learn how to become better leaders, start a business, or juggle their passion project and day job.



Stephanie Manganelli and Debbie Grill-McInerney, Co-Founders, Stowaway Collection 

Stowaway Collection Maternity was founded in the Fall of 2016 by a mother-daughter duo, Stephanie Manganelli and Debbie Grill-McInerney. After the two set out to search for on-trend, figure flattering maternity options for Stephanie, while pregnant with her first son. They left disappointed by the quality and offering in traditional maternity retail and vowed to change it.

Stowaway Collection was born with a determination to bring the maternity retail industry up to speed with the rest of the fashion world. Items from the collection were designed to take you from desk to dinner and beyond. Offering the versatility to quickly dress up or down each item so you are ready for any situation. Most importantly, Stowaway Collection encourages you to celebrate and show off your beautiful, pregnant bump and not hide beneath a tent. Everything is designed to be stretchy and comfortable so your wardrobe can keep up with you and your busy schedule. Many items in the collection were designed to be worn post-pregnancy too, so you can really get longevity out of your purchase. The brand has made shopping online easier free shipping and free returns (within the US) and all items are made here in the USA.
