I’m sad to announce something wonderful to you all. It’s a new annual full-ride scholarship for the #GirlsClub leadership certification program in honor of my late friend and #GirlsClub Thought Leader, Lynn Parker.
Generation 4 applications are now open!! It’s such an exciting time for us behind the scenes. We love looking at the talented and ambitious women who apply every year. We know that behind every application is a brave woman who worked up the courage to have a conversation with their boss or advocate about their future. Becoming a part of #GirlsClub is about investing back in yourself, you can take the first step today!
Recently, the amazing Amy Volas, Founder & CEO of Avenue Talent Partners, was kind enough to join us from her vacation to talk a bit about how to navigate a career move like a badass. We aren’t talking a job move, we are talking big picture here. Whether this move is an outside interview, or you are inquiring about a promotion at your current company, knowing how and when to toot your own horn is an art in itself.
Month 1 of Summer Camp is in the books! If you’re new here, Summer Camp is #GirlsClub’s free 3-month sample of our program and an extension for our Generation 2 graduates who lost the chance to connect with their co-participants and mentors at our in-person finale conference.
Thirty minutes ago we closed our 90-person zoom #GirlsClub Generation 2 Finale Celebration.
I’m incredibly proud of the work the women and men did this year in our 6-month virtual cohort, scan below for some incredible stats, standouts, and spotlights.
“I never asked!”
Margaret Arakawa, CMO at Outreach shared a phenomenal story at her company’s “Gals in Sales” event in Seattle. In her previous role at Microsoft, she was asked to interview candidates to be her new boss. But halfway through the process, she realized, “I can do this job.”
Meet Carrie Jeffrey, Account Development Manager at 360Insights. I had the honor of meeting Carrie last month at the Unleash conference in San Diego. She attended the #GirlsClub Women in Sales breakfast where I learned of her unconventional journey to sales leadership. I was inspired by her courage and confidence and excited when she agreed to share her story with our community. Enjoy!
Patti Baumgartner joined #GirlsClub as a Protege this year and we are thrilled to have her! She has immersed herself in the the program and has really stood out during our live training sessions. She is quick to share her experience and application of the skills being learned and multiple proteges have commented on how helpful she has been during and outside of the live trainings.
Meet Christin Myers, VP of Sales at Openworks. Christin has spent the last 7 years championing for women leaders in her organizations and most recently has joined #GirlsClub as a mentor. She epitomizes the #GirlsClub values through trailblazing new women in leadership programs, taking a risk in leading something she’d never done before, and believing in abundance by building the people around her up. She is a true champion of women and we’re excited for her to share why gender diversity matters she was able to create change through her involvement in #GirlsClub.
