The Cincinnati Chapter of Business and Career Women is hosting its annual event this weekend to connect and elevate local women. Read on for more!
To celebrate National Business Women’s Week, the Cincinnati Chapter of Business and Career Women Inc. is hosting Mission I’m Possible on October 26 at the Taft Center at Fountain Square.
“The combination workshop and light dinner will feature Dr. Monique Johnson, local Life Coach and Diversity and Inclusion Consultant,” explains Linda Wright, Publicity Coordinator for Mission I’m Possible. “Her talk will focus on helping women thrive and advance in business, while helping to obtain equality in the workplace – doing their P.A.R.T. through Promoting, Acceptance, Respect, and Teamwork.”
The event, says Wright, will also include Cincinnati’s BPW’s recognition of Cincinnati Councilman Christopher Smitherman for his part in drafting and supporting a motion to strengthen the city’s policy on sexual harassment.
With an evening of networking and dinner by the bite, Mission I’m Possible arose out of a desire to help women get ahead in business and break through the “glass ceiling” as well as fighting for equal pay and a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment for all women.
The Cincinnati chapter of Business and Professional Women is led by Ursula Bess, who wants to help bring women together through the event.
“This annual event offers a valuable opportunity to call attention to the ongoing needs of women in the workplace, facilitate discussions on the challenges working women face and how to create viable solutions, share information about successful workplace policies and draw attention to employers that are engaged in practices that support working women,” says Bess.
The event will be held on October 26 at the Taft Center at Fountain Square from 6:30-8:30 pm. Tickets for the event are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
