We will continue to follow all protocols required by California COVID19.CA.GOV and the CDC Community, Work, and School | COVID-19 | CDC. In addition, we will require attendees to verify vaccination status or proof of non-Covid19 symptoms prior to or upon arrival of any in-person OWE event by completing an attestation.Upcoming Member Events
Our members are talented, ambitious, high-achieving professionals involved in business, government, education, philanthropy and the arts.
We sponsor monthly, seasonal and annual events for our membership that address professional needs, topical interests and leisure pursuits.
Our volunteer board of directors is elected annually from among our membership.
I moved well ahead of my family from Texas to LA to start a new job. Not only did I miss my family, I missed the many friends I left behind. I thought that it would take me years to develop new friendships in LA, but that all changed when I walked into my first OWE meeting. Without knowing a single person there, I immediately knew that I was among friends and a remarkable group of women.”

Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Technology
OWE is a wonderful organization and I am thrilled to be a part of it! It is full of diverse, experienced, and thoughtful women who are leaders within their industries. As a member of 11 years, I have gained both meaningful friendships and professional guidance. The combination of unique networking events and curated dialogues has been inspiring. The women involved, as well as the featured speakers, have shared insightful perspectives, created connections, and encouraged engaging conversations. There is a real sense of camaraderie and care where everyone is warm and approachable.”
