Deb Barrett Takes a seat on WithIt Board of Directors
WithIt, The Women’s Leadership Development Network, announces the appointment of Deb Barrett, Window Dressings, as Vice President of Networking to its Board of Directors. ( Yup- that’s me!) I am the new chair of the networking committee. I’ll be organizing the WOW awards and President’s receptions at Market each year, (and you all know I am a planner).
WithIt, a non profit organization encourages and develops leadership, mentoring, education and networking opportunities for professional women in the home and furnishings industries.
As a veteran of more than 30 years in the design and home furnishings industry, I have built a deep professional background in my passions. As a design entrepreneur, speaker, consultant and décor, I strive to inspire and energize my peers. I am honored to be awarded WithIt’s Educator of the Year in 2015 and was the WITHIT Conference co-chair in 2016.
“I am very excited to assume my duties as VP of Networking and working with the incredibly talented Board of Directors. I can’t wait to get started on implementing our plans for WithIt’s future,” says Barrett.
WithIt was formed in 1997 for women in the home and furnishings industries in order to support their multi-dimensional career paths. The organization’s purpose is to encourage and develop leadership, mentoring, education and networking opportunities for professional women in the home and furnishings industries. The non-profit association is based in North Carolina.
