Rola El Chami
Founder
Survive For Women

In 2013 our founder, Rola El Chami had returned from Palestine and Jordan, where she worked with an international NGO supporting communities in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and in refugee camps across the Middle East; that she eventually ended up in Dubai. She found herself in a difficult situation where she wanted to be back at work where she could make a difference and, in the field, supporting others – something she was not able to achieve in Dubai at the time. ? After a while, Rola entered the metropolitan lifestyle, worked with a PR agency, and represented a range of different international renown clients. Between work and social life, she continued her research on refugees, women, and children with a focus on domestic violence in the Middle East as well as making hand-made bracelets as a hobby. ? Through research, she found is that gender violence manifests essentially as violence against women, and it is one of the most significant epidemics in the Middle East today. We have seen the numbers of domestic abuse rise significantly across the region and in any given time of any conflict or a pandemic, the most people to be effected and that are vulnerable, are women.

Sanam Farshidi
Business Owner
SDF Communications

On July 31, 2016 Sanam Farshidi was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On August 31, 2016 Sanam underwent an awake brain surgery to resect the tumor from the left side of her brain. Sanam walked in to surgery with no physical deficits and walked out with numbness and motor and spacial deficits from the neck down on the entire right side of her body. She has worked hard to regain her physical functionality on the right side of her body, and with lots of determination, Sanam has bounced back. Sanam's extraordinary circumstance allowed her to gain a perspective about life and meaning that she probably wouldn't have gained were it not for her seemingly random diagnosis. Sanam holds a Master's Degree in Communication Studies and has always had a passion for the spoken and written word. Desperately shy as a child, it wasn't until Sanam attended college that she realized communication was a skill one could learn. Up to that point, Sanam assumed some were born with the gift, while others were not. Sanam has about 10 years of communications and public speaking experience in the education and corporate sectors. She has taught communications and public speaking at the college level, as well as to children and working professionals. Sanam believes firmly that our ability to communicate effectively influences our individual and collective success, and she is determined to help people use communication as a tool for growth.

Meghan Smith
Founder
Smith Law Group

I started Smith Law Group because I enjoy the perfect intersection of analytics, organization, and personal interaction found in real estate and business matters. Every day my team and I get to advise individuals and businesses in real estate transactions, business formation and succession planning, and landlord-tenant issues. I work closely with my clients to clearly understand the details involved in their transaction or case and tailor my advice and services to meet their goals while protecting them from future legal or financial liabilities. I focus my practice on real estate and business law. I have extensive experience handling commercial and residential real estate transactions and refinancing, commercial and residential landlord/tenant matters, business formation, and contract drafting, review, and negotiation. I also negotiate purchases and sales of business assets, membership interests and stocks, prepare buy-sell agreements for business owners, and assist clients in transitioning businesses to the next generation. My skill in these transactions is enhanced by my pre-law school years as a paralegal and legal assistant and more than ten years of foreclosure and business litigation. I received a BA in Business Management from Gettysburg College, then returned to the northeast to attend Western New England University School of Law, where I received my JD. While at WNE, I participated in the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Team and received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award. I am licensed to practice in Connecticut and am a member of the Connecticut Bar Association and the Tolland County Bar Association. In 2012 I received the Statesman Award from the Greater Hartford Jaycees for extraordinary dedication and service, and in 2020, I was honored to be named to the Hartford Business Journal’s “40 Under 40”. I believe in giving back, and as the proud wife of a US Navy Veteran, I’m honored to volunteer my time to the New England Veterans Chamber of Commerce as a Board Member, and in defending local Veterans in eviction cases through the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center. I also serve on the New England Veterans Chamber of Commerce and volunteer at my children’s school. When I am not working on my clients’ legal matters, you can find me and my husband and our daughters hiking, golfing, or otherwise enjoying being outdoors.
