Join us for a community gathering of women considering the next stage in their professional and personal journey.

Led by Jamie Renwick and Sophie Koven of Tide Risers, this narrative workshop will guide you through exploring new opportunities, sharing your unique experiences, and connecting with local women from diverse backgrounds.

Jamie Renwick

In 2019, Jamie launched Tide Risers Fairfield County, a year-long cohort experience for women leaders committed to the greater good. She serves as the Lead Facilitator for Tide Risers Fairfield County.

Jamie has worked as a fundraising professional for more than two decades, with clients including Teach for America-CT, The East Harlem School, The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library, Squash Haven, Billion Oyster Project, Weill Cornell Medicine, iMentor, Prospect Park Alliance, Newark Charter School Fund and the Brooklyn Community Foundation. Previously, she lived in London and worked for Chelsea & Westminster Hospital in development; was the Campaign Director for PAVE Academy Charter School’s $12 million capital campaign in Brooklyn; and served as Director of Development at Harlem Children’s Zone. Jamie was also the Associate Director of Major Gifts at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College during the Hospital’s $1 billion campaign and the Medical College’s $750 million campaign. She also worked for Student Sponsor Partners, Central Park Conservancy, and a congressional campaign in South Carolina.

Jamie holds a BA from Duke University and lives in Greenwich, Connecticut with her husband and three girls.

 

Sophie Koven

After twenty years working in real estate and economic development, and starting and running two businesses, Sophie decided to start a mediation practice. Her experience as a lawyer, consultant, and business founder prompted her to focus on conflict resolution because she saw so many great projects and deals fail due to seemingly small disputes that the parties were unable to navigate successfully. In her personal life she also witnessed friends and family struggling with difficult transitions: separations, divorce, the care of aging parents and the transfer of family properties and businesses. In many cases attorneys were retained, but the time and expense of attorneys, and their rights-based approach to the problem, often heightened the conflict. Mediation provides an alternative to litigation, while still providing a structure and process that can allow parties to think about solutions, rather than focus on the conflict.

Sophie trained as a mediator with Elizabeth Clemants of Planning Change in New York City. Sophie is certified to mediate family and small business disputes. Sophie is a graduate of Brown University, BA Urban Studies, and Harvard Law School, JD. She is a member of the New York Bar. Sophie worked in New York City for many years as a lawyer and consultant representing for profit developer, not for profit community development corporations and municipalities. She is Vice Chair of the Billion Oyster Project in New York City, an organization working with public high school students to restore the oyster beds in New York Harbor.
