Last Wednesday, Ladies NYC had the pleasure of celebrating our first Happy Hour of the year at Sidebar in Union Square. Over 30 women and a few men showed up to help kick a year of fabulous networking into gear. It was lovely to see all of the familiar faces and many new ones!
This January, Ladies America’s national focus was on negotiation skills. This is a challenging area for so many professional women who want to advance their careers. Tricky though it may be, the beginning of the calendar year is a great time to start thinking about how to be an advocate for yourself in your professional life. Thanks to social media, there are a plethora of helpful resources out there, from articles to videos to workshops. We have truly enjoyed learning about and sharing some of these resources throughout the month.
As we move into February, we look forward to hearing from all of you about your personal and professional goals for the year ahead. We hope you’ll be able to join us for our Creative Career Planning event on February 28th, hosted by career coach Jasmine Briggs. Visit this link to find out more and register: http://bit.ly/15LHIJR.
