Lots of exciting stuff happening with the Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) right now.

For starters, Girl Talks West is taking place tomorrow night at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco. We’re so excited to hear from our fabulous speaker squad, comprised of Laura Alber from Williams-Sonoma, Brenda van Camp from SharpAlice, Michelle Lam from True & Co., and Sukhinder Singh Cassidy from Joyus and theBoardlist. I know it will be another great event. If you’re in the San Francisco area tomorrow night, why not come on over? Register here.

In other news, WIRLC has officially launched “Forums” on the members-only section of its website. The “Forums” provide members the opportunity to ask questions in the safety and privacy of other retailer-only members. Want to hear about new, high-level job opportunities? Find out the skinny on a vendor partner? Simply have a burning question that keeps you up at night? Post it on the Forums. Simply go to “Membership Tools” and click on “Forums.” Then you can choose General, Partner Technology or About Jobs and get started! I’ll be jumping on to join the conversation, so let’s connect online.

And I’m happy to report that there are a quite a few job openings posted in the “Jobs” section right now. Members, check them out! (And nonmembers, this is just one more perk of being a member of WIRLC, so why not become one today?)

Finally, we have some fun member news: Ivka Adam, WIRLC Advisory Board member and co-founder and CEO of cool jewelry startup Iconery, has just launched a jewelry collection with actress Rashida Jones! The line includes 11 pieces of jewelry with a retro vibe. So cool!

Have a good week!
