I hope you all had a restful holiday and 2021 is off to the best possible start given everything that is going on which is a lot. We have some neat events for you this year. Given the trajectory of COVID and the rate of immunizations, we plan to be virtual through September, but will get back to in-person events as soon as it is advisable because we miss you!
To that end, all of our events this year will be interactive and include a networking component which means a chance to interact with both our amazing speakers as well as each other! You will note below that we are starting with help for our working moms with the founder of Parents Pivot. I am also thrilled that we will be hosting Michele Smith, RYT for her coveted Resiliency Training Workshop because resilience is something we all need. Check out our site for more details.
To start, women and workers of color continue to bear the brunt of pandemic-related job losses. See full article here. To that end, we would ask our readers to please share any job openings with us so we can get them to our members.
If you want a good gift idea for the men in your life, consider Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace. The authors delve into the fact that the lack of gender equality in our society is a woman’s issue and something women have to fix themselves. The book explores how men can partner with their female colleagues to advance women’s leadership and equality by breaking ingrained gender stereotypes, overcoming unconscious biases, developing and supporting the talented women around them, and creating productive and respectful working relationships with women.
I would ask each of you to consider corporate sponsorship of TXWSW. Benefits include attendance at our flagship events and recognition for your firm. And most importantly, you help us support the life-changing work of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network. To learn more about YWPN, you can find a short video here.
