The OWA's Professional Optical Women's Workshops (POWW) is now the Connection Series: Connecting Members to Leadership Ideas. These events provide unique educational opportunities, both regionally and in conjunction with major trade shows, for members and guests to explore topics of interest to women working in the optical industry that will enrich their personal and professional lives.
The OWA's Program Committee launched the first POWW event in California in 2005. This popular event has become an OWA "signature series" with the goal being to provide forums for OWA members to gather and network in various areas of the country while having access to information that will help move them along their career path. The first Connection Series event — Seeing (Blind) Spots? Men and Women Working Together — was held in September 2014.
