Careers and Leadership
Chair: Leah Feldman (914/ 475 8946)
This initiative seeks to provide professional and leadership development opportunities for female professionals and students. Team coordinators will offer workshops and panel discussions and share their professional experience/expertise on the unique issues women face. Goals include assisting women in developing as leaders and professionals, and providing support as they seek to advance their careers. Programming will include partnerships with local Institutional Member Colleges and Universities and other organizations throughout the community.
Since AAUW provides access to extensive research on priority women’s issues such as wage negotiations, debt, glass ceiling environments, work/family balancing, and cultural/sexual harassment, these resources also may be called in to add dimension to our local work. For example, participants may be trained in AAUW’s StartSmart/WorkSmart Program on salary negotiations while beginning a career and after. Please consider joining this team to provide a valuable and needed community service!
