EWA 30th Annivesary Trivia Quiz


For our 30th Anniversary event, Dawn Ford and Jeannie Dulaney put together a 30-question trivia quiz to test our knowledge about current and past female leaders in our community. The quiz is fun and informative and is a good reminder of how far we’ve come in terms of female leadership in the past 30 years. View the quiz.

About EWA

Executive Women's Association (EWA) was founded in 1979 for the purpose of affording mutual support; facilitating common education from sharing information, experience and ideas; enhancing the potential of women executives; enabling women to attain leadership positions in the community; and encouraging women to aspire to the highest career goals. Currently, EWA has approximately 155 members. Our meetings are typically held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Ruth's Chris Steak House, although occasionally we will meet at other locations of interest to the membership. There are also several  After Hours events scheduled during the year. Past outings have included Wine on the Water at Sea Ray Boats, a walking tour of downtown lofts, and a visit to Richard Jolley's Studio.
