170 people attended the inaugural event on Thursday at the Marriott Bethesda Downtown

Here are photos from MoCo360’s inaugural Women Who Inspire Luncheon, held Sept. 14 at the Marriott Bethesda Downtown.

More than 170 people enjoyed lunch during a panel discussion with 2023 Women Who Inspire honorees Anne Khademian, executive director of the Universities at Shady Grove; Maryland Secretary of State Susan Lee; and I.M.P. Chief Operating Officer Donna Westmoreland. The panel was moderated by MoCo360’s executive editor, Anne Tallent. Scott and Jillian Copeland, owners of MoCo360, delivered opening remarks, and Rachel Pomerance Berl, MoCo360’s own “Ms. MoCo,” served as emcee. The luncheon was followed by networking and discussion over coffee and dessert.

Holy Cross Health was the title sponsor. Gold sponsors were Universities at Shady Grove and PNC Private Bank.

The event was designed to support MoCo360’s mission to inform, connect and inspire our community.
