1.The Redwood Sisterhood is dedicated to pulling together experienced women professionals who are of a like mind to encourage personal and professional growth through learning, and openly sharing with a mix of social fun in the process – making room for and inspiring even greater accomplishments of the next generation.

·Peer coaching calls to work on members’ specific challenges
·Book Nugget summaries
·Regional-based breakfasts and ladies’ nights out
·Stay tuned: Blog Talk Radio LA101, Retreats
