The OWA actively welcomes all women in optical to become members and to take part in the creation of, and participation in, our resources, events, and programs. Members of the Optical Women's Association are encouraged to excel in their chosen way, and by actively welcoming and celebrating diversity and inclusion, we create space for growth and a richer experience for all.
Leading a Team to Greatness vs Managing to Goals — Tracy Neal, Director of Customer Support for GPN Technologies, talks to our co-hosts about motivating and cheerleading teams to not only produce output, but on how to thrive personally and professionally.
Finding Enjoyment in Creating Space
Friday, December 1, 2023
The holidays provide wonderful opportunities for reminiscing over memories of years past, enjoying old and new stories as we catch up with friends, cherishing moments with our elderly community members, and laughing at the shenanigans of children.
Want to learn more about OWA's fascinating membership? Our members are amazing, and we want you to get the inside scoop on what makes them so great. Meet OWA's most recent featured member — Brookelyn Sager. After learning about Brookelyn Sager, you can view past Member Spotlights here.
There are many reasons to become an individual contributor of the OWA. As one of our contributors states, "It truly makes me feel good knowing that I am doing a small part to support all of the incredible women of our industry, so many who have faced past adversity in a male-dominated business and who are now leaders in their own right. Knowing I am personally supporting these women is a true benefit unto itself."

In case you missed it, the OWA held its first-ever Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday, September 20! It was an opportunity to meet and speak directly to OWA board members, hear more about the OWA's activities and initiatives, and greet fellow members. The OWA brings together a wonderful community of women in the optical industry that is supported and encouraged by our members and sponsors. We want to make sure we continue to do our best to fulfill our mission of connecting, leading, and inspiring. We enjoyed seeing everyone at this inaugural event!
