How should I get to the Leadership Luncheon?

Please note that people have waited an hour plus to get their car out of the valet at the Marriott Marquis, so we strongly recommend avoiding parking in valet.

Instead, ride with Lyft and enjoy 20% off your ride to the 2018 Leadership Luncheon.  Simply type WAWFLUNCH2018 directly into the "Promos" section of your Lyft app, or have the code texted to your phone by visiting

The best Metro stop is the Mount Vernon Square/ Convention Center stop on the yellow line.
The address is:

What should I wear?
Most people wear business attire to the luncheon.

What time should I arrive?
Please arrive by 11:00 for the networking reception. Several people missed the beginning of the program last year due to high levels of traffic, if you plan to arrive in time for the reception you will be sure to see the full program.

I am a sponsor, how do I share the names of my guests?
Look for an email with your unique sponsor registration URL in an email from  If you did not receive one, please email to request it, or simply send your guests names with emails and dietary restrictions to the same address. 

Each share, tweet, and email helps us spread the word about Washington Area Women's Foundation.
