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

Dear Friends,

I hope you're well and that you can attend our next event with Maya Raber of Tulip Management.  Her topic is "Leading Change."  Please note that our event time has changed.  

If you strictly want information about this event, please look at the links to the right and go to Event Registration.  Before you go, please check out the book links at the bottom of this page. 

Last month, Christine Young and Jenny Vonderwerth planned planned our event, with Sheila Dundon MS, SPHR, the President of Priority Leadership Group.  She presented “Advancing Women Leaders:  The Win/Win Solution”  Please click here for the PDF download.  Thank you all!

One of the hardest things to manage in life is change.  When change occurs in my personal life, I usually see it coming, plan for it, mentally practice my responses and possible outcomes.  Usually that works but not always!

Managing change at work is a whole other animal.  Being in a position where I'm not the change agent, where I'm depending on others to manage their own changes and I also have changes - that is a whole other set of challenges.  I'm looking forward to learning from Maya Raber and I hope to see you there.

You can subscribe to the blog, share it on Facebook or Tweet it. Join us on LinkedIn.

Because of my commitments I can’t mentor you, and please don’t send me unsolicited resumes. Come to an event and meet someone who can help. I receive a lot of unsolicited resumes (from our group and strangers) and I refer people to the forum at See the blog post for more thoughts.

We have a page on our site for advertising with links to Amazon products. Our site also has Google ads, and you're welcome to click on relevant links. These links provide a small amount of money to help pay for our domain.
