Annually during July, EWG honors newly elected board members with a swearing-in ceremony and reception.
The swearing-in ceremony and reception brings together Federal Government women executives, proteges, and guests in celebration and recognition of leadership within EWG. The reception also serves as a networking event, bringing together the Board and Committee Chairs, membership, proteges, and valued partners.
Join us in welcoming the incoming 2018-2019 EWG term officers:
President: Patrina Clark
Vice President: Deborah Leben
Secretary: Jennifer Holtz
Treasurer: Cynthia Morgan
The ceremony is scheduled for July 18, 2018 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm at the Dacor Bacon House in Washington, D.C. Tickets are free and a cash bar will be available. Light hors d’oevres will also be served.
“We, the women in government who were really concerned about the advancement of women, began having meetings. I was then serving in the White House and was able to arrange meetings there, first in the Roosevelt Room, then as our numbers grew, in larger venues. After I left the White House we wanted to keep meeting, so we formed Executive Women in Government in 1973 and created by-laws in 1974. The level of camaraderie and support was astounding. For us EWG was an anchor, a place to come to share experiences, support one another, and make life-long friendships.”
