STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education (The Center) will present its third annual Women Empowering Women forum on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Stamford Marriott Hotel and Spa.

The hotel is at 243 Tresser Blvd. in Stamford.

This year’s panel discussion, “Building Your Personal Brand,” will be moderated by Rebecca Surran of News 12 Connecticut. Panelists are: Mary Abbazia, managing director of Impact Planning Group and co-author of "The Accidental Marketer"; Renie Anderson, SVP of Sponsorships and Partnership Management for the NFL; Natalie Grainger, director of The Chelsea Piers Squash Program; and Judy Goss, founder and CEO of Over 40 Females.

The women will share their stories and insights on how they consciously think about and control their brand and the messages it sends. Each will offer her perspectives on how she has gotten to where she is today, how she intertwines life and work, and what she does to differentiate herself in order to move ahead.

“We all have a personal brand but most of us do not consider it,” noted Lynn Tusa, co-chair of the forum. “We need to manage it strategically, consistently and effectively. The panel of diverse women we have assembled will be sharing their wisdom and perspective to an audience from across Lower Fairfield County. These women come together for networking, inspiration, and to support The Center’s vision of a world free from sexual violence.”

The evening also features an opportunity for guests to connect with the presenters, mentors and attendees before the panel discussion over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, with coffee and dessert after the discussion.

New this year will be exhibitor tables focused on empowering women in our community and a free raffle.

Tickets are available now at $75 per person. Friends of The Center tickets are $1,000 (includes four tickets plus special recognition) and $500 (includes two tickets plus special recognition).
