About this event

If you are not ready to tell people what you want, you are not ready to receive their money. Understanding the lifecycle for grants at every stage and how this helps you nail the whales is what we will discuss during this fireside chat, intended as an interactive discussion.

Prepare your questions, concerns, and experiences to share with our main speaker, Devika Gopal Agge.

Hosted by Voyka Soto, NFBPWC/NYC Secretary and Co-Chair of the national NFBPWC Special Committee: Afghan Women's Project working to assist with the resettlement of displaced professional Afghan women.
