Chances are you’ve already put together your list of goals and resolutions for the new year.
But how do you go about finding the resources to accomplish them? How do you expand your network to best support your ventures?
Join the communities of New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT), The Gotham’s Owning It, and LMHQ for a networking mixer to find new resources, skills, and contacts — and share your own areas of expertise!
After brief introductions, participants will self-select into three rotating breakout sessions. Areas of focus will include fundraising, pitching, marketing, and business ownership. You will have the opportunity to ask fellow participants for resources and advice as well as provide your own resources to others.
This is a great opportunity to meet women and non-binary individuals across industries and build your professional network toolkit —and hopefully, make some friends while you’re at it!
Date: Tuesday, January 18th, 2022
Time: 5:30 PM – 7 PM EST
Virtual Platform: Zoom
Cost to Attend: Free!

LMHQ stands for Lower Manhattan Headquarters. Since 1995, the Alliance for Downtown New York has been working to enhance the quality of life in Lower Manhattan by providing workers, residents and visitors with a clean, safe and dynamic neighborhood. That’s why, in 2015 the Downtown Alliance opened LMHQ. At the center of inspiration and action, with 800+ creative companies flocking below Chambers Street, the oldest neighborhood is being completely redefined. Lower Manhattan is a natural location for LMHQ – serving as the central meeting place for this dynamic community to come together to collaborate, meet, brainstorm, and learn new skills. Join us and a diverse community of professionals in our civic-minded mission to strengthen connections and contribute to the city’s growth. Learn more.
