NAWRB and the LA Sparks
On August 30, 2015, the Los Angeles Sparks sold out the Staples Center for the first time in franchise history, showcasing stories of transcendent women and a campaign that illustrated the strength and importance of women leaders. NAWRB is partnering with the LA Sparks to repeat this historic feat on July 10, 2016. We need to show that we not only support and advocate for women, but we are there when it counts. Join NAWRB and the LA Sparks in showing up for women!

Nominations Now Open for NAWRB 2016 Roaring Twenty Awards!
Our Roaring Twenty Awards Gala on August 31, 2016 will honor housing’s leading women who embody the spirit of revolution and progress of the 1920s! These awards are for the women changing the game and breaking down barriers that stand before them. Almost a century after the Roaring Twenties we continue working for equal opportunities and representation. The pioneers of the women’s movement may no longer be with us, but as the leaders of yesterday make their exit, the leaders of tomorrow will rise.
Good Habits When Sleeping and Waking Up
A demanding job, the commute, after-work errands or maybe even dropping off and picking up kids from soccer practice can leave you drained after a long day. Often times however, exhaustion and the need for a nap creep in during the day, much earlier than anticipated and without warrant. The solution is sleep.
Staying Healthy as a Busy Professional
Being busy connotes that you don’t have a lot of free time, which is directly related to staying healthy amid the hustle and bustle of your personal and professional life. Having to make quick dietary decisions can often lead to choosing what is easiest and unfortunately, unhealthy foods such as fast food or prepackaged snacks provide a tempting immediacy and convenience.
