Volunteering at Women In Consulting

We have completely revamped how we’re making things happen for Women In Consulting activities, events, and the inner workings of the organization. 

Why did we do that?

  • To make getting involved and meeting new people MUCH easier for you
  • Help fit these projects into your schedule by making them short, well-defined, and interesting.
  • Offer more opportunities to get your brilliant thinking into the equation of where Women In Consulting is going.

Volunteering raised the bar for me in connecting with some amazing, powerful and talented women. The level of networking increases exponentially for volunteers—we have access to more people, and more opportunities as volunteers, gain more experience in collaboration, and improve our talents overall.

Angel Rampy

Volunteering at WIC has given me such an opportunity to understand the back-bones of a well-organized professional non-profit board. It also has given me tremendous deeper connections to professional women who I truly respect and admire. Volunteering has been my way of also giving back the support that I have gained from WIC in building my own business.

Volunteering is the best way to get to know the members of Women In Consulting. One creates much deeper relationships with members, and is much more involved in the programs and organization benefits.
