Dear NAWBO Richmond Members & Community:

In keeping with the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Governor Northam’s mandate to limit large gatherings, we are suspending our NAWBO Richmond Chapter programming through May 15, 2020.  

This includes the following planned events:

  • May 6, 2020 – Women of Excellence Awards Celebration (Rescheduled for September 29, 2020).
During this programming hiatus, we will be moving to an online platform. We are committed to bringing you informative and inspiring events that enable you and your business to grow and we remain focused on that goal.

Please take this opportunity to follow us on Facebook: (,to stay up-to-date with our activities and share ways that we can support each other during this time.  We have also collected a number of helpful resources which you will find listed below.

    • Virtual Session

    As we continue to meet the challenges of the COVID 19 crisis we must find different ways to move forward.  Now more than ever we need to lead our businesses, and ourselves, with the fearless authenticity that will bring us success in our new normal.  

    Many books tout the benefits of authenticity, but none explains how to lead authentically or considers the rewards and risks of that choice.  Join Danessa Knaupp, CEO and Founder of Avenue 8 Advisors, for an engaging virtual session on how to own your unique story and use that real, imperfect experience to drive your personal and business performance in a transitioning work and social environment.

    As a result of attending this session participants will have the opportunity to:

    • identify what’s in the way of their full authentic selves
    • understand the benefits of authenticity for their businesses and themselves
    • learn six steps to shedding their fear and showing up as their best selves at work
    • apply these lessons in our rapidly evolving new state of “normal’
    Meet Our Guest Speaker

    If you want to read Danessa's book, Naked at Work, before the event you can buy it on Amazon if you click here.
