Women care for others in many different ways. As mothers, they care for their children. As “caregivers”, they care for family members or acquaintances who have physical, psychological or development needs. Women spend as much as 50% more time on parenting and caregiving than men. Working women have even greater challenges due to lost wages from reduced work hours, time out of the work force, family leave or early retirement. Our multi-generational caregiving roundtable will consider the challenges unique to working women.
Come share your stories and words of wisdom or come to learn from the experiences of others. It’s potluck refreshments, so bring some food and drink to share. No reservations are necessary.
Do you like your business card? Is it projecting the image of you or your business that you desire? Let’s meet up and talk about it with experts.
On January 31, you are invited to The Melting Pot (2221 4th St N, St. Petersburg) for an event that is a little social, a little practical and a lot of fun. We’ll meet up around 6 pm and have some time to network and exchange those business cards. Perfect Copy and Print will provide some complimentary, yummy munchies. Then, the helpful folks from Media Garage, a woman owned, superstar advertising agency, will help us look at our business cards with an eye on marketing strategy and graphic design.
Reservations are not required but if you have any questions, feel free to contact Membership Chair, Tiki Bates at email@example.com for more information.
