Happy Summer Solstice! It's a little bit hard to believe summer is finally here, and also hard to believe half the year is already past. But we have all kinds of things to keep you and us busy this summer, fall, and next spring, too.
We are planning a really great event this fall, with follow-up across the state. Intentional Leadership for the New Economy: A Discussion on How Ensuring Diversity in the Workforce Drives Business Success will highlight local leaders who have created corporate cultures which embrace women and diversity, leading to success. National studies all agree: more women, people of color, LGBTQ+, and people with differing ability drive business success, and this event will get to the nuts and bolts of how to create the change we want to see in the corporate world.
Then, we'll host a series of seminars focused on helping women in all stages of their careers ask for the salary they deserve, from researching the going salary for your position and preparing for your pitch, to asking your manager for equal pay. Women don't ask, but we should! These tools will help you get the courage and grounding you need to assure you are being compensated appropriately.
Looking for summer fun? The Sea Dogs have
two promotional evenings specifically highlighting female achievement: A League of their Own Night on July 6th, and Margaret Chase Smith Bobblehead for Women's Equality Day on August 26th. Let's show up and represent!
And finally, we missed you at the Leadership Luncheon last month, and have heard you missed us, too. Fear not, we'll be back with a springtime event next year, including everything you love about the Luncheon and without what you didn't.
More information on all of this and more will be forthcoming in future newsletters, social media, and on our website, so keep your eyes open.
Until next time,
