Esther 4:14 “….. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
We honored Linda Harper-Brown at today’s IWN luncheon by presenting her with an IWN Member of the Quarter award – which is awarded to a member who has made significant contributions to her community—and a woman known for her integrity, perseverance, and service to/on behalf of others.
Linda regaled us with a wonderful talk about women’s places and influences in Texas history, both local and statewide – and did we ever learn a few things! We will miss having Linda’s voice in the Texas House and do so appreciate all that she’s given to and done for the City of Irving over the years!
Irving Women’s Network (IWN)
Our purpose is to promote business interaction among women in the DFW area, to enlighten and encourage women in their business endeavors, and to educate them in the nuances of networking. This is accomplished through programs in networking techniques and the encouragement of the use of goods and services of fellow members.
We offer excellent networking opportunities for business women, community leaders, and volunteers in Irving and surrounding areas. Members include small business owners, representatives and employees from small businesses to large corporations, civic leaders, and community volunteers.
Getting involved The ultimate in networking. IWN is about getting to know each other, working with others on projects, giving back to the community, and ultimately growing businesses through mutually beneficial relationships.
Community involvement Want to become more involved in your community? You must meet our group. Involved these ladies are! Lots of opportunities to serve Irving. Bring a friend and come check Irving Women’s Network.
We partner with Irving ISD in their Partnerships in Education program with Stipes Elementary School and Project PASS. We also sponsor The Main Place, which is a distribution center for brand new and gently used clothing for Irving’s homeless teen student population
