Women’s Leadership Alliance To Spotlight And Support Female Business Owners
In an era where ideas and concepts must be developed more quickly than ever before to remain competitive, Putnam County business leaders have begun an ambitious collaboration to facilitate better communications, training and opportunity for local businesswomen.
The Putnam County Women’s Leadership Alliance, a partnership between the Putnam County Chambers of Commerce and the Professional Women of Putnam, is holding its official kickoff event on Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6 to 8PM, at the Putnam County Golf Course, 187 Hill Street, Mahopac NY 10541. Admission is free. There will be resources and entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Guest speaker for the evening will be Putnam County Executive Maryellen Odell, and each guest will receive a complimentary signed copy of author Allison Pataki’s historical novel, “The Traitor’s Wife.”
“Pulitzer-Prize-winning author and Distinguished Harvard Professor, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich once said, “Well-behaved women seldom make history,”” says Odell. “Today, women are in leadership positions because they are not afraid to use their intellectual talents and their business savvy to compete with their male counterparts. That is what our Women’s Leadership Alliance is all about – supporting their leadership, professional and economic growth by providing networking possibilities, seminars and mentors.”
Times have changed. The leadership skills that come naturally to women are now absolutely necessary for businesses to be successful. The Putnam County Chambers of Commerce and our strategic partners are looking forward to creating an atmosphere that not only empowers women to be in leadership roles but allows them to celebrate who they are. Jamie Imperati, President of the Professional Women of Putnam and Chairwoman of the new Alliance, agrees: “Together we will do great things and provide opportunities for new business development and personal growth for the members in the Women’s Leadership Alliance.”
