Stronger Together: Women's Network + Greater Akron Chamber

Monday, August 26, 2019 by Jan Conrad

It has been a year since I took on the role of Executive Director of Women’s Network. In that time, especially with the release of the Gender Equity and Women’s Leadership Research at FLUX last fall, our organization realized that accomplishing the amount of change necessary to impact gender equity was beyond the “one woman at a time” model we had been employing.

It would require increased capacity to impact business culture shift in Greater Akron.  The message of workplace parity needed a broader platform. We began to engage in conversations with the Greater Akron Chamber about how we could cooperatively create measurable impact in tandem with the Elevate Greater Akron initiative.

We are excited to announce that Women’s Network is finalizing the details for a formal partnership with the Greater Akron Chamber to enhance the work of gender and racial equity across the region.

The Greater Akron Chamber brings deep connection to the business community with the shared goal of economic impact throughout the region.  We see this affiliation as a way to scale the Women’s Network operation and gain the bandwidth needed to reach hundreds of women. Access to business leaders is key to reaching beyond the corporate front door to the potential future leaders working within those organizations.

As conversations evolved, we realized that both organizations could benefit from the collaborative effort.  As Steve Millard, president and CEO of the Greater Akron Chamber, announced to his board in August, “Together, our team will be providing a unified set of leadership programs and opportunities to accelerate the growth and success of our region.”  Both organizations’ Board of Directors voted unanimously to support the effort.

The final step will be finalized at the Women’s Network annual membership meeting on September 23rd, 2019. The benefits to both organizations will be substantial as we embark on the full integration and partnership plan.   I am inspired by the support of both organizations and ready to move forward to grow our mission stronger together.

See the full Gender Equity and Women’s Leadership Research report here.

Thesis Helper
As a student, it would be hard for you to easily trust any online sites for getting the best thesis help as it would be a vital part of your academic career. Several false companies would give you the worst experience, so you need to do proper research about the company before hiring it. But, you need to choose a professional company providing the best thesis helper who guarantees their work and the quality of writing they’ll provide. It can be dangerous if you hire an unknown company for thesis writing, and there’ll be possibilities of losing money. You must check the reviews of the companies online that the actual customers provide. Also, various companies have different prices for the services they offer you can compare them and choose the best one as per your requirements.

威而鋼
關於威而鋼25毫克。這是目前最低的劑量。25毫克的效果比50毫克和100毫克稍差,但其副作用和與其他藥物相互作用的風險最低。如果你試過威而鋼50毫克,發現它對你有效,但你也有輕微的副作用,醫師可能會推薦這個劑量。如果你的健康狀況使較高的劑量不太安全,如高血壓,或者你正在服用可能與威而鋼發生相互作用的藥物,你也可以開始使用這個劑量。<a href="https://www.eviagramall.tw">eviagramall.tw</a>、<a href="https://www.eviagramall.tw/56">威而鋼的副作用</a>
