Our members say it best

"Some of my dearest friends I met through the IWIRC Chicago Network. Hands down the Chicago Network has the nicest members of any insolvency group in Chicago."

Jill Murch Nicholson, Foley & Lardner LLP
Chicago Network

"I really feel strongly that women should make more opportunities to network and get ahead."

Gogi Overhoff, Gumbiner Savett, Inc.
Southern California Network

"IWIRC is a tool which allows for professional women to build lasting relationships of the kind that generate opportunities for networking, professional growth, transcending friendships and last but not least, fun."

Leyza Blanco, Gray Robinson
Florida Network

"When our Los Angeles chapter gets together, there is an implicit warmth that stems from connecting as professional women. The sense of fellowship continues at the national conferences, where we have the opportunity to not only greet longtime colleagues and share some war stories but also learn how others are dealing with real day-to-day issues."

Rivian Bell, Abernathy MacGregor Group
Southern California Network

"Since I joined 6 years ago, IWIRC has been a safe haven for me in my professional and personal life. Being a working mom in a highly competitive, fast-paced turnaround industry is not easy. The solidarity and companionship I have found through IWIRC has been invaluable to me."

Salene Kraemer, MAZURKRAEMER Business Law
Western Pennsylvania Network

"Through IWIRC events I have met and developed a network of friends throughout the southeastern United States who provide encouragement and guidance as related to both IWIRC events and to me in my professional career. IWIRC events and the friends have been such an unexpected blessing in my life over the last year."

Jennifer B. Kimble, Prime Clerk
New York Network

"IWIRC conferences/meetings are filled with positive energy that strengthen my base and platform as a restructuring professional."

Sharon Weiss, Holme Roberts & Owen LLP

"IWIRC is an organization where I really feel connected to the other women. Even though our lives and backgrounds are varied, we share a common bond in an industry that is still male dominated."

Kara Rescia, Eaton & Rescia, LLP
New England Network

"This is a community of women that understands my life. Both my successes and my struggles. I can find a mentor and be a mentor."

Carianne Basler, AlixPartners

Andria M. Beckham, Bricker & Eckler, LLP
Central Ohio Network

"IWIRC is a great organization for getting connected. Not only is the group fun and professional with its members easy to get to know, the IWIRC conferences prior to the large events (ABI and NCBJ) make those conferences much more manageable as one already sees several friendly faces."

Alicia DenBeste, Epiq Systems, Inc.
Georgia Network

"IWIRC is one of the few platforms that allow professionals to network, catch up, exchange thoughts, give and receive advice on personal, career-related or job-connected issues, have fun together and above all that-- build relationships without being under the pressure to pitch or impression to "be pitched" constantly. This is a place beyond a permanent vanity fair."

Annerose Tashiro, Schultze & Braun GmbH
European Network

"To me, IWIRC means connection. Whether I'm going to a conference or simply on a business trip, I know I will be connected to other IWIRC members. If I need a referral on anything – other professionals, meeting venues, restaurants – I know it is at my fingertips."

Deb Kuptz, AlixPartners
