Unbelievably, it’s already March. Have you started working on some of your career goals for the year? If not, start this month and you can still make great strides in 2017.
As you may know, March celebrates International Women’s Day (March 8th). Because of this, I’ve filled this issue with links, resources and articles related to women in the workplace and I share some websites specific for working women. I hope you enjoy them.
Working with women in career management has always moved and motivated me. One of my major career / business goals is to start working with more women and women’s groups, and finding new ways to engage women with their careers. If you have any ideas for me in this regard, please feel free to share them.
P.S. I only want to send things to those who want to receive them. If you want to unsubscribe at any time, please follow the instructions at the bottom of this message.

As mentioned last issue, I’m really interested in speaking to women’s groups focused on mid-career professionals between 40 and 60 years of age. If you know of any groups that match this criteria, please let me know. Three popular topics I can address are: Assessing and Marketing Your Strengths, Proactively Changing Careers, and Managing Your Career for Success.
