WE'RE EMPOWERING WOMEN
with our Career Success Series
Public speaking & career workshops for women & girls
Beginning with a listening session where we gathered input from local women, we launched our Career Success Series in the autumn of 2016. Designed to help women succeed both in the workplace and in business as entrepreneurs, we put together monthly workshops led by seasoned local experts, covering topics from honing interviewing skills, negotiating salary, and mentorship to starting a business, the art of networking, and a speed networking event.
Weekend public speaking workshops from the renowned Own the Room organization, a $795 value, were next... and in the autumn of 2018 we launched a Toastmasters Junior group for high school girls. Then, in the spring of 2020, we launched our WE 360 program for black women entrepreneurs to help them take their businesses to the next level... or to start one. The six-week program is specifically designed to help women of color overcome barriers in entrepreneurship. Our first WE 360 program sold out. Stay tuned for more!
We're holding our next Own the Room workshop on April 25 and May 2. Register online and see more information here!
