Stanford Professional Women of Los Angeles

President’s Letter – February 2019

Dear SPWLA Members,

We have had the pleasure of connecting with both familiar and new faces at this year’s SPWLA events. Your participation and valuable feedback have helped in planning our events to be more convenient and inclusive. As you may know, Stanford’s 2019 Beyond the Farm is on April 27. This event is a global service day for Stanford alumni to give back to their local communities. SPWLA has participated in this event as either an event host or a partner organization. Please contact us at if there is a non-profit that you would like to suggest we support for this event and/or if you are interested in helping to organize our service day. Submissions are due on Friday, February 15, 2019.

I am excited to announce that we will be hosting another SPWLA Day on Saturday, April 14, 2019. SPWLA Day is a day-long event that will feature presentations and activities with local Stanford alumni professionals. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet new people across a variety of interests, industries and professional levels. This event is a great opportunity for you to learn something new and make new connections. Attendance is open to all as we encourage you to bring guests to this event. Be sure to save the date and look for additional details!

We still are looking for people who are interested in sharing their ideas and talents in a more active role with SPWLA. Contact me at if you are interested.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!
