The Personal and Professional Development programs have been revised

Author: Communications Committee/Wednesday, July 23, 2014/Categories: General

There’s a new game in town and it’s going on the road.  Check it out:  The Personal and Professional Development programs have been revised with a whole new twist. 

Career Recognition

Career Recognition is the first leg in the new PPD Programs.  Do you have a niece, a friend, a friend of a friend, a daughter-in-law who has a story of their personal success?  The new program is open to anyone who has overcome challenges or has achieved a goal in her work, volunteer, or personal arena.

New Careerist

Who within your circle has changed careers?  What challenges prompted her to turn her life in a whole new direction?  The New Careerist Program is the second leg in the PPD programs designed to show professional growth.  Anyone who has changed her career within the last 5 years is eligible for the New Careerist Program.

Political Development

Have you stepped on anyone’s toes lately?  Did you try to turn the world around?  The Political Development Program is the third leg of our mission statement.  Write a letter to your legislator, visit his or her office to convince the legislator to reconsider his or her position, and then tell us your story.

Athena Society

Do you know someone who’s having difficulty creating a home in the civilian world? The Athena Society Program is comprised of a workshop series that will help transition military women into civilian life.  Can you offer your expertise in one of the workshops listed below?

  • Finances and Budgeting
  • Home Basics – creating a home in a civilian world • Resume Building – writing a resume for a civilian job based on her military experience • Dress for Success – what to wear to get a job • Helping with Children

Youth Leadership

Invest in our future leaders.  The Youth Leadership Program’s series of seminars help to stimulate the interest of high school students in life skills and career options. 

The success of these programs is only achieved by TEAMwork – Together Everyone Achieves More.  Together, the team can use these tools to increase membership, and help current and new members see the benefits to New York State Women, Inc. membership. 

Would you like help presenting these programs to your chapter or region?  This show is going on the road!  Contact Gale Cohen, PPD chair, at [email protected].  For more information on the Personal and Professional Development Programs, go to www.nyswomeninc.org
