2022 Women of Western Wake Forum

On Sept. 30, Cary Magazine honored five local women who have had a strong impact on our community and beyond: Cary Heise, Charmaine Riggins, Irena Krstanovic, Jackie Ferguson, and Karen Russell. To celebrate their achievements, the 2022 Women of Western Wake Forum was held at The Umstead Hotel & Spa — featuring a keynote breakfast session, workshops, a headshot café, networking opportunities and a luncheon and honoree panel. Huge thanks to our photographer, Jonathan Fredin, for capturing every special moment.
