The Beginning of Ladies America
“Women Helping Women”
THIS IS OUR STORY
Ladies America began in Washington, D.C. with our founding chapter, Ladies DC in 2006. What makes it remarkable, however, is that Ladies DC (LDC) actually 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.
