Networking may not always seem easy. Karen and I, two of your WBC Engagement Committee members, were at the Capital Region WERC event yesterday. The panel event focused on connecting with each other and also recognizing and celebrating their recent graduates who were sitting in the crowd. Most of the women are people who are returning to work after an absence, typically to raise a family. As they reenter the workforce, they need things like coaching, resume help and educational opportunities and WERC provides that to them.
Networking can be a challenge unto itself for some. Myself included. Can you imagine starting all over again, reinventing yourself, finding your voice? Probably many of our readers can. Even if it is just a new career path that you have embarked on
The Women’s Business Council does a stellar job providing opportunities for women to network in a relaxed atmosphere but there is always some trepidation when you enter a room and the new Engagement Committee intends to continue to reach out to the women of the WBC.
