More than 100 Network of Executive Women members learned the value of channeling and celebrating personal experiences at the NEW Mid-Atlantic fall networking event, Dec. 4, 2013 at the Bethesda Marriott in Bethesda, Md.

Sociologist, author and comedian Dr. Bertice Berry used humor and stories drawn from her own life in her keynote presentation "ReNew, ReEnergize, ReEngage the Leader in You.”

Emphasizing the importance of celebrating success as a group, Berry recalled a trip to Africa, where she gave a coat to a tribal woman and was thanked by other women in the village as though they had received gifts themselves. "When you do well, I do well,” Berry said. "We are all connected.

"Women leaders must mentor others," she added. "When you get to the top, you need to send the elevator back down.”

Calling the Network a "success-sharing community,” Berry said "NEW brings women together to let them know that they deserve good things.”

"Keep learning and keep sharing,” Berry advised, adding that women should avoid shouldering too much of other people’s burdens. "Those who care a lot carry a lot, but you need to learn to care without carrying.”

Among the organizations sending large delegations to the event were Altria, The Coca-Cola Company, Giant Foods, Harris Teeter, Nestlé, Safeway Inc., Shoppers Food and Pharmacy and Staples.
