When I came to my first Fourth Floor dinner I was blown away by the women in the room and thrilled to have the opportunity to get to know them. I had started my company 6 months prior and was just kicking off my first venture capital fundraise. A conversation that started casually with angel investor Diane Henry transitioned to a more meaningful coffee chat and ultimately her investing in The Vendry. I’m incredibly grateful to The Fourth Floor for facilitating that connection for me!
- Daphne Hoppenot, Founder of The Vendry
"I am so impressed with the women I met at the Fourth Floor soft launch. The founders all had amazing stories and vision, the speakers were thoughtful and provocative, and I left thinking not only was this about time, but that everyone in the room was a rock star."
- Louise Firestone, SVP and General Counsel of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc.
"The Fourth Floor brings together an impressive community for well-curated and intentional relationship building. Attending one of their organized dinners included thoughtful conversation prompts that led participants towards creating meaningful connections that go beyond typical networking events. I look forward to being a part of this community as it continues to grow!"
- Emily Wazlak, Founder of Shine Registry
"I'm so delighted to have found the Fourth Floor community - the women I've met are unfailingly curious, interesting, engaged, eager and motivated to grow relationships and experiences outside the four corners of their workday. The programming that the Fourth Floor team puts together is beautifully curated yet expansive enough to serve the range of interests, careers and women who make up the membership. I'm very much looking forward to seeing, and participating in, the development of the community, which seems to be so rich with potential and critically addresses a natural gap in the networking ecosystem."
- Gillian Warmflash, VP and Assistant General Counsel at J.P. Morgan
“I love the values behind the Fourth Floor -- that women can and should support one another and when we do, we will all win. As an entrepreneur, I have benefited from the support of amazing female General Counsels over the years who have been true business partners. This talented group is often an untapped resource and I'm thrilled that the Fourth Floor is here to change that dynamic.”
- Dana Mauriello, MBA, serial entrepreneur and founder
"Having been in the legal industry for almost two decades, I am often challenged and frustrated by the lack of mentors with whom I have shared experiences and backgrounds. I am excited about The Fourth Floor and the possibility of connecting with an incredible community of women leaders who are committed and interested in shaping our present and future with inclusive compassion, intellectual curiosity, and authenticity. I can't wait to see what's next!"
- Jennifer Chung, GC, AccuWeather
