LEADERSHIP MARKED BY LOVE, TRUST & COURAGE

BY JAKE LOCKER

Jake is a former American football quarterback. He played college football at the University of Washington, and was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. He is the co-owner of The Locker Room in Ferndale, WA with Michael Koenen, a fellow Ferndale grad and former punter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He will be speaking about how leadership is necessary and we are all called to it. There are many great examples of effective leadership throughout history. The leaders he respects and loves learning from most are those that knew the purpose they were leading others towards. Their appeal was found in their unwavering commitment to the hope and joy of those around them.

PROFESSIONAL WOMAN OF THE YEAR GALA & SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER

The PWOTY award is a unique opportunity to engage and support women with varying backgrounds, stories and areas of expertise. Every year, we ask the public to submit nominations to highlight amazing women playing pivotal roles in their business and community. These individuals develop future leaders, mentor our children and peers, and give back in ways that impact us all.

In addition to recognizing several of our community’s truly deserving professional, our annual banquet serves as an incredible opportunity to support students and fellow non-profits. The PWOTY banquet is Whatcom Women in Business’ sole fundraiser, allowing us to grant four scholarships each year to women furthering their education. Additionally, one non-profit is selected annually by membership. Supplemented by member’s donations, funds raised during the banquet allow us to make a generous contribution to their cause.

JUST LIKE THE MEN: A BELLINGHAM FILM
Cassidy Brooks & Stacy Reynolds
Talking to Crows

 We’re a female-majority film production company producing a film written by Bellingham local, Ella Higginson, in 1914. The screenplay satirizes her own experience campaigning for another local Bellingham woman, Francis C. Axtell in 1912 resulting in a historic win for women in Washington state. Our presentation discusses the lost legacy of Ella, our adaptation of her original screenplay, and how we intend to make this film successful on local, academic, and mainstream levels.  We wish to connect with the women of WWIB as this film was written, directed, produced, and edited by a team of women that spans over 100 years.
