WithIt Dedicates Plaque During Anniversary Events
WithIt dedicated a bronze plaque today in the Historic Market Square building near the Century Courtyard. This plaque honors the founders, founding board of directors and founding advisory council as part of the year-long celebration of WithIt's anniversary.
This permanent marker honors the first 20 years and spotlights our mission. This mission, to encourage and develop leadership, mentoring, education and networking opportunities for professional women in the home and furnishings industries, has remained relevant since our founding in 1997. International Market Centers has been a generous partner in both sponsoring the plaque and providing a highly visible wall for its permanent location.
WithIt has chosen to honor the founding board of directors and founding advisory committee who worked tirelessly to raise funds, recruit members, create programs and build the organizational framework as a permanent recognition that women have had a significant influence on the industry.
“We are so thankful that IMC has generously provided us with the space and opportunity to design a lasting tribute to celebrate the many women who worked so tirelessly to create WithIt,” says Dorian Stacy Sims, WithIt’s 2017 president and president of Stacy Furniture and Design in Dallas, Tx. “Now, 20 years later, we are grateful for their vision, commitment and determination for WithIt and the positive impact it has had on so many in our industry.”

The formal unveiling took place on Friday, October 13, 2017, and was attended by IMC management, WithIt members and leadership, as well as founders Jena Hall and Kimberley Wray and several founding members and sponsors. The third founder, Margaret “Peggy” Traub, passed away in 2013.

I'm part of WithIt to have a direct "red phone" line to a brain bank of women with competitive intelligence, strategies, and problem solving experience--and to be at the other end of their red phones.
Together, we create powerful collective business momentum and our strengths can change the landscape of leadership in our industry to reflect sexual equality.
