The event is a collaboration between the Maryland Jockey Club and the BWCC Women in Business Group. “It seemed like a perfect fit when The Maryland Jockey Club reached out to us about co-hosting a Networking Gala and Luncheon on Black-Eyed Susan Day,” said BWCC Chair and WIB Chair, Josie Thompson. “The BWCC works hard to support and encourage professional women by providing useful information and valuable networking opportunities. By partnering with the Jockey Club, we are working together to fulfill our missions.” As it happens, they’re also helping us to fulfill our personal mission of meeting other amazing like-minded women, and having a great time while we’re at it. We’ll be there.
