The Alvernia University Women's Council (AWC) is pleased to invite you to our 2nd Annual Fall Luncheon on Wednesday, September 18th.
We invite you to join us as we present the Bernardine Legacy Award to Karen Marsdale, retired Senior VP of Programs at the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance and Founder of the GRCA's Women2Women.
In her role with the Chamber, Marsdale has been responsible for creating a number of highly successful initiatives, most notability the Women2Women program and Berks Family Business Alliance.
“Karen has been a tremendous leader and role model for women in and beyond Berks County, said Alvernia University Women’s Council President Ashley Mikulsky. “Like our inaugural recipient Linda Ludgate, Karen embodies the spirit of this award and we look forward to celebrating her with the community .”
She has dutifully served the Alvernia community as a member of the Communications Department Advisory Committee and the Berks Education and Leadership Council, an initiative of Alvernia’s O’Pake Institute for Ethics, Leadership and Public Service.
The Alvernia University Women’s Council fosters the personal and professional development of Alvernia women at all life stages, strengthens their connection to Alvernia and each other, and educates and inspires them to pursue and grow in leadership roles both in their chosen profession and greater community.
Proceeds from the AWC Fall Luncheon support the efforts of the AWC and the Newcombe Scholarship Fund.
