Center for Women Virtual Fundraiser

Be Fearless (About Self-Promotion):
An Evening With the Center for Women and Meredith Fineman

November 18, 2020
7:00 p.m. via Zoom

The Center for Women (CFW), a program of the National Council of Jewish Women Pittsburgh Section, supports every woman on her path to discovering the confidence, information, and skills she needs to obtain, increase, and better manage her income.

Since COVID-19 struck, even more women have turned to CFW for help as thousands have lost jobs and securing employment has become more competitive.

Please join CFW and our special guest, Meredith Fineman, author of Brag BetterTM: Master the Art of Fearless Self-Promotion. Ms. Fineman will share her roadmap for becoming our own best champions. No matter who you are, this is a talk you won’t want to miss!

The Center For Women (CFW) supports every woman to discover the confidence, information, and skills she needs to obtain, increase, and better manage her income. Our financial coaching, internships, mentoring, and workshops are our tools. Since 2013, we’ve depended on volunteers to serve as financial coaches, mentors, and workshop presenters to help us move hundreds of women to financial stability.

CFW supports anyone who identifies as a woman. Our programs are open to women regardless of background, faith, or socio-economic status. We are committed to understanding and responding to the deeper challenges faced by our clients of color, and the evolving challenges faced by women as a result of the global pandemic.
