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

Dear Friends,

The summer has just flown by! I hope you've had a great time and a little time to relax and refresh.

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 this important update about our group.

We are holding 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.

Recent events have pointed out the need for workplace violence training. I received an article from one of our former speakers, Allison West, Esq., SPHR, SHRM-SCP, and am providing the link here

Many of us who have dealt with an unhinged employee or has had to walk someone out the door have had that worry: what happens if the person has a gun?

Please review this excellent video on the FBI website, "Run. Hide. Fight." There is great information regarding the active shooter in the workplace, and you can apply this knowledge to other situations.

It makes me very sad to know that we all have to be prepared.

Our September 16 Community Event

This event is open to all, and the topic is “Taming the Abrasive Leader ” with our guest speaker Patrick Reilly. Please RSVP if you're attending. If anything comes up at the last minute and I need to reach attendees, I can't do it unless you have registered. Additionally, we will need to escort you inside the building so being on time is essential for this event. You can read about our event here and if you’re attending, please register.

Thank You for Our Last Event

Our Planners and Volunteers were Galina Karpinska, SPHR-CA and Angie Bose. The topic was “3 Big Mistakes that Lead Professionals to being Unappreciated, Under-utilized and Unmotivated in the Workplace" with Clara Chorley. Many thanks to all!

Not only do I hope to see you at our next event, 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,
