The organization now has chapters in Boston, San Antonio, New York, and Los Angeles.
Optometry Divas, the leading network of women in optometry in the United States, is excited to announce its expansion into four new cities: Boston, San Antonio, New York, and Los Angeles.
This expansion will allow the organization to further its mission empowering, connecting and promoting women optometrists nationwide.
"Expanding into these new cities is a major milestone for Optometry Divas," said Lauretta Justin, OD, founder and CEO of Optometry Divas.
"We are thrilled to be able to reach more women optometrists across the country and offer them the resources and support they need to thrive."
With the addition of these new chapters, Optometry Divas will be able to connect with more leaders in the industry and provide them with the resources and support they need to succeed running their businesses and in their personal careers.
The organization, founded in June 2015, offers a variety of services, including mentoring, networking, and professional development, all of which are designed to help women optometrists achieve their goals and reach their full potential. Events include regional dinners and an annual educational retreat that features panel discussions, fellowship activities, and continuing education (CE) opportunities over the course of a single weekend.
"By growing our number of chapters, we are not only expanding our organization, but also, the reach of our message," Justin said.
"We believe that by supporting and empowering women in the field, we can help to elevate the entire profession and create a more diverse and inclusive place to practice.”
Optometry Divas has already established itself as a trusted resource for women optometrists, and with this expansion, the organization is poised to have an even greater impact on the profession.
