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

Dear Friends,

How are you? Happy March!

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.

I recently wrote about how our group works and how I depend on a lot of people's contributions of time, professional services, and space.

I also explained how I pay for the website hosting and domain name through my own checkbook and the ads on our website you may click on along with our Amazon links below my signature.

Two people contacted me about this, and there may be others with the same question about ads that show on the site. I do not control the ads you view on the site. They are controlled by the cookies on your own computer. This is a process called “personalization.” If you shop on Amazon and look at a product, the next time you visit, you’ll see that product along with recommendations for similar items. 

One way around that is to clear your cookies on your browser. Another way, and this is more effective for me, is to go to and go through their menu of cleaning up advertising and making choices. I do this every couple of weeks and it has helped a lot. 

Today I'm writing about our March event, the HR Symposium discount, and a request. 

Our March 16 Community Event
We're pleased to announce that Diane Cusano will present “Inspiring Yourself to Thrive by Reframing Your Thoughts.” I’m interested in leaning how to change my own thought patterns and coach others to do the same Please see the event details and RSVP link by clicking here.

HR Symposium Discount
The HR Symposium as again provided our group members with a discount. If you register right away, your registration fee is $199. Please review the site at, and if you want to attend, mail your check with a note that you’re with our group to:
Helen Heath
HR Symposium
1648 Graff Court
San Leandro CA 94577

Please Join Our LinkedIn Group
Please join our group on LinkedIn so you’ll be updated on announcements and posts. Because it is much easier to send mail through LinkedIn than my home email, I strongly encourage you to join the group. You can post articles of interest, questions, meetings, resumes and jobs.

Thank You for Our Last Event
Karen Mathews Radau presented "Best Practices - Giving Productive Feedback,” a very interesting and useful talk. I enjoy presentations that help me in my personal life as well as my professional life.

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,
