More than 200 women gained insights into their personal style and leadership capabilities during the Tulsa Area United Way Women's Leadership Council's fall reception - Own Your Style and Empower the Leader Within - held recently at Gilcrease Museum.
Those sharing their expertise were local business leader Sharon King Davis, Sabrina Ware of Goodwill Industries of Tulsa and Charlotte Lindley of Signature Style.
Davis discussed how to navigate life's twists and turns and encouraged participants to develop their leadership style. Ware highlighted the work her agency conducts in this area, the importance of job training and other assistance the organization provides.
She also emceed a style show of clothing available for purchase at Goodwill stores.
Lindley led the group in determining aspects of their "style personalities."
Lindley and Kelly McElroy of Street School introduced Dee Carpitcher, a Street School graduate, who received a makeover courtesy of the leadership council. Her new look got a round of applause.
Those attending were asked to bring a new or gently used accessory item to donate as their ticket for admission to the event. As a result, more than 350 items were given to Family & Children's Services' Women in Recovery program.
