Silicon Valley Women in HR...& Friends Mailing and Event Announcement

Dear Friends,

How are you? I hope you are healthy and enjoying this winter.

I start my posts with a few personal notes and then delve into upcoming events. You can skip down to event announcements, but I encourage you to read an important update about our group.

We are making some changes in our meetings!

Our team of volunteers met in January, and we decided to hold formal meetings once every two months, and for those in-between months, we encourage you to plan coffee, lunch, dinner or an event on your own! You can use our LinkedIn group to publicize your event. This will give you some latitude in location and timing, and that should help more of us come out and meet each other.

Please join our group on LinkedIn so you’ll be updated on announcements and posts.

I redesigned one of our pages so now you can view our calendar with speakers and topics along with the event registration. You can click here to view the link.

We had a good turnout and fantastic comments about our last speaker, Angela Szymusiak and her topic, “Life After the Annual Review ~ Adobe’s Move to Check-In.” When you enjoy a speaker, one of the best things you can do is link to that person on LinkedIn and write a recommendation, and if you know of another place that person should speak, spread the news!

Although I had planned the January meeting, I was pretty sick and couldn’t attend. Thanks to Christine Young, everything went smoothly. Thanks so much, Christine!  

Our March 18 Community Event

This event is open to all, and the topic is “Executive Coaching Toolkit: 3 Practical Coaching Tools You Can Use to Develop Leaders.” Our guest speaker is Rita Graziano, MA. You can read about it here and if you’re attending, please register.

Not only do I hope to see you next month, I do hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity to plan some extra networking events. I would love to attend some!

All the best,
