Recognizing the emergence of women in all aspects of late 20th Century life, the Women's Group of Gotham was formed in September 1998 for the purpose of bringing together service-oriented professional women in complementary fields. Gotham LI Women is the second group within the Women’s Division and was formed in 2004. The group's goal is to provide a forum for women to support other women in their business pursuits and to share contacts, ideas and resources. Members have formed strong bonds and have come together to support each other's professional and personal endeavors. Gotham LI Women is a non-compete group and meets for breakfast on Long Island.
