As we await yet another blast of cold air from yet another Clipper Storm, my thoughts have turned instead to what’s ahead for NCJW Pittsburgh Section in the upcoming Spring months. Here’s what is keeping me warm:
Workshops at the Center For Women
The Programming Committee, under the leadership of Hilary Spatz and Dodi Walker Gross, has created an exciting slate of workshops at the Center For Women. Upcoming February workshops include: Tax 101: Tax Basics Every Women Should Know; Family Dynamics: There’s No Such Thing as Normal; The Art of Networking; Women’s Job Seeker Support Group. All workshops are held at the Center for Women at Anathan House. To reserve your spot or to register with a friend, call the Center for Women at 412-421-4400. The Center’s workshops are designed to educate and energize, with classes offered at a variety of times. The speakers are engaging and the sessions are informal. If you haven’t stopped into the Center for Women on the first floor of Anathan House, please be sure to do so next time you’re Up Street. Becky Abrams has the current class list for your review.

Mentoring Program at the Center for Women
If you are a woman experiencing a life transition and you are looking to embark on a year-long exploration of self-reflection and personal development, the Center for Women Mentoring Program may be a good fit for you. The Mentoring Program connects eligible female participants with a mentor who acts as trusted friend and guide. Navigating a life transition such as job loss, divorce, death of spouse, or workforce re-entry can be overwhelming. The Center for Women understands that having a support person walk this journey with you can help turn a bad ending into a new beginning. The Mentoring Program aims to create a supportive community of women helping women achieve success. For information, please call the Mentor & Internship Manager Lindsey Miller at 412-421-4400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internship Program at the Center for Women
Workforce re-entry can be challenging in today’s economy. An internship can provide an excellent bridge between careers. The Internship Program through the Center for Women provides opportunities for hands-on work experience, to help prepare to re-enter the workforce, hone in on specific career interests, and gain knowledge in a desired career field. In addition, our female participants are able to help area businesses complete critical projects and tasks. If you are a woman in transition seeking opportunities to promote your career development, then the Center for Women Internship Program might be for you. For information, please call Lindsey at the Center for Women.
And stay warm!
