Women You Know, Women You Want to Meet - Eastern Iowa
Hosted by Suzanne Summerwill
at her home in Coralville, Iowa  

On Tuesday, June 5, 2012, Suzanne Summerwill graciously opened her home for an evening of delightful food, wine and conversation. Every year, a wonderfully diverse group of women gather to talk about what’s important to them, make new connections, and catch up with long-time friends. New projects, collaborations and ways to get involved are born. The event has become such a success, that new Women You Know events are springing up all over the state.

Hosted by Shayla From
at her home in West Des Moines, Iowa

More than 100  remarkably talented and committed women in Des Moines attended the 2012 Women You Know Women, You Want to Meet. This event, hosted by Shayla From, was hugely successful! Friends of ICSW | Women You Know

Shayla's stunning home served as the perfect venue for our event. The lovely atmosphere, fabulous decorating and the opportunity to enjoy such an architecturally beautiful home contributed greatly to the success of our event.

The Friends hosted a book signing at this event for Suzanne O’Dea and her much anticipated new book: Madam Chairman: Mary Louise Smith and the Republican Revival after Watergate.

All proceeds from this event will be used to help fund the Friends’ Gender Balance Initiative designed to assist Iowa communities comply with the provisions of the 2009 law requiring that all local boards and commissions be gender-balanced.
