2017 – 2018 WBN Service Project

The Center For Women

Is your chapter interested in hosting a Networking Night for the Center For Women clients to meet your members and other women in business? Hosting these evening events entails rustling up some of your chapter members to attend that evening, providing refreshments for guests (cookies, chopped veggies, chips/dip, water, soda and a couple bottles of wine) and organizing an icebreaker activity to get everyone talking and meeting up.
Networking nights are 5:30 PM—8:00 PM. We’ve had a lot of interest in this but no chapters have confirmed participation to sponsor a networking night – and it’s such an easy activity! These events are held at the Center for Women.
Open dates to be a Host Chapter are:
October 18, December 14, February 21, April 24 AND June 10 (which is a networking brunch—the refreshments for this are a little different – perhaps two chapters could co-sponsor this event).We’d like to get the chapters for all networking nights and the brunch up as soon as possible. Please discuss at your meetings and let Berni Bishop Pirollo know the date you’d like to secure. 

Job and Internship Fair
October 3rd from 1:00 PM — 3:00 PM:

Does the company you work for or own hire laborers, administrative staff, entry-level employees or interns?
If so, please get involved with the Center For Women and get yourself or your HR department signed up for a table.
Please contact the Service Project Chair—Berni Bishop Pirollo (Pittsburgh City East) at 412-422-3430 or email at bernibishop@mac.com.
