Brunch season is upon us and this Saturday Marty McDonald is uniting corporate women to teach them how to thrive in their 9 to 5. “I want to show our audience women who made it, women who are really out here hustling and have accolades and credentials to show,” says Marty McDonald, founder of Boss Women Who Brunch (BWWB), a Dallas-based organization built on providing value to women and the community they serve. In May 2016, Marty created BWWB as a personal need to connect with women who desired more. “I don’t think anyone can prepare you for what entrepreneurship really looks like,” says Marty. With only 25 attendees at the first brunch, Marty has grown BWWB to a powerful brand and organization that not only helps women achieve the life they deserve, but also acts as a community support system.
Originally from Tennessee, Marty moved to Dallas eight years ago without knowing a single person. “Dallas is a hard market to navigate when you don’t know anyone,” says Marty. “I joined a lot of organizations to get acclimated such as Junior League of Dallas. I wanted to be connected with women who were creating pathways, women who were breaking glass ceilings, and women who were sitting at the table. I wanted to be around women who were moving in their careers,” she says. Marty later realized that the clubs she joined weren’t her true tribe. She began to question why there wasn’t a community of women that looked like her, women of color, that were making power moves. These questions led her to hosting her first brunch in May 2016. By February 2018, Marty built a strong community and hosted a conference with 250 people in attendance, that’s 10 times the attendees of her first event. “The events showed me women need a community, they want to know how to build a brand and how to move from manger to director, and that’s why I started it; because I just wanted to inform women and be around women who were doing awesome things.”
“After hosting event after event, I realized this is what GOD put me here to do, to empower women to believe in themselves and to help them cultivate the career of their dreams. This is exactly what I’m here for,” she says. BWWB’s upcoming event, “Corporate Women Unite: How to 9 to Thrive in Corporate,” speaks to the corporate gal who wants to climb the corporate ladder. She’ll learn valuable tips and lessons from successful speakers that include: CEO and president of Women’s Foodservice Forum, Hattie Hill; former president of Del Frisco’s Grille and C-level executive, Sarah McAloon; senior brand manager at Sally’s Beauty, Mia Lawrence, and more.
These speakers will speak on key messages to provide the opportunity for attendees to learn more about:
(1) Tips on Negotiating
(2) Finding Your Voice
(3) How to Move from Manager to Director
(4) Being Your Authentic Self
(5) Mindfulness Coach on Visualization
“Corporate women often feel isolated with little information available to help them move from one position to the next,” said Marty. “The event allows these women to network with the local community, while highlighting and gathering insight, in person, from notable panelists who will share advice and provide actionable tools on how to achieve their career goals.”
