President's Message

Looking Ahead to 2018

We are on hyper drive as we move into 2018 and if you are a CWNC member you may have seen our accomplishments report we circulated at the end of last year, but I believe it’s worth another mention. As we start this year, with a fantastic 2018 Board of Directors and refreshed career development topics, let’s take a look back at our accomplishments over the last three years and our exciting line up for this year. Read more>

New Year, New You!

Achieve your career goals, connect with women in your community, and build lifelong skills. Set yourself up for success today and beyond with our 2018 ReCharge, ReInvent and ReIgnite Workshop Series.

Recharge Workshop | February 27, 2018 | Register

Workshop Highlights:

  • Create Your Career Vision – A first step in strategy is knowing what the goal is. Often we limit our possibilities before we even set that goal. Deborah Oronzio has a signature program (typically 8 hours) that she has tailored for our workshop. Participants will be guided to expand their vision while creating and taking home Vision Boards to keep that vision alive.
  • Intentional Networking –Intimidated by networking events? Local author and speaker, Joe Novara will share how he overcame his fears of attending large networking events and the procedures he developed for getting the most out of every networking event. Get ready, take notes and become a networking all-star!
  • Goal Setting – Founder of Smart Career and former CWNC Board Member Kelly Walsh will wrap up with a 15-minute laser goal setting session with worksheets. It is critical to both 1. Learn and 2. Do….so we will provide tools to go into action and accountability. You will leave with 30-day action planners that help start turning ideas into reality.

Mentoring Program Kicks Off in February

Our mentors and mentees are currently being paired to begin the 2018 mentoring cycle. Our flagship program pairs mentors and mentees over the course of six months. Mentors and mentees meet one-on-one to develop a relationship that provides a confidential, supportive environment to discuss development and career goals and supporting strategies to achieve them. 

 Registration for mentees is now closed but feel free to sign up on our wait list.

2017 Mentoring Program Highlights

“2017 was another successful year for our mentor program. Over 34 women joined and benefited from our program as mentors and mentees. During our closing ceremony, several of our participants shared their success stories about the positive impact the program made in both their career and personal development. We closed our 2017 program with a powerful message shared by our keynote speaker, author and life coach, Elizabeth Trinkaus, who spoke about self-care and success. We are looking forward to another successful year in 2018!” 
Tanishia Butler, CWNC Mentoring Director
