Women in the Workforce Event

By January 11, 2017Events

The International Day Of The Woman is March 8. With that in mind, Melanie Kunc with the Nebraska Department of Labor wanted to have an event for the area. After an exhilarating brainstorming session with Melanie and her staff along with Lisa and Derek from York County Development Corporation, The Women in Workforce Event came to be. Our three organizations wanted to host a casual event that women of all ages and backgrounds would feel comfortable attending. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 6 from 3 – 5 PM to join us at Chances R’s Shi-Ray room for this informative session.

A casual panel discussion will take place focusing on the vital steps to making your career. There will be ladies from various companies and organizations that will be on hand leading discussions with attendees. The intent is to have a casual atmosphere so women of all stages of their career will feel comfortable. Women may be transitioning to new position within their company or just looking for a completely new career path and these discussions may help them with some of those unanswered questions.  Making your wardrobe work for the job you want is always tricky. Megan Burda with Nebraska Extension will have a session about wardrobe essentials and how to make them work for you.

In today’s business environment, lunch and learns and business meetings during a meal time are the norm. Most organizations are aware that between work and family, most people have difficulty carving out extra time for a meeting or an educational session. Business meal etiquette tips are guidelines that everyone can use. Margaret Brink, retired York Public School teacher and a community leader in Public Health and Safety will lead a discussion on simple tips to help you through the business lunch or social hour setting.

As the event winds down, and attendees are wanting to continue their conversations, we invite you to stay and visit with panelists, presenters and other women. There will be an opportunity to order off the menu (at your own expense) and possibly put some of the etiquette tips to use.
