Our meet-up will also benefit Gilda’s Club in the fight against cancer, and we are adding a third course for women in Transition!! Yes, I know that’s a lot of news, but we want all of you to know what we are doing to pay it forward and help other women!
Details are below!
Seattle – GoGirl Academy™, the Seattle-based career advancement program for women seeking a competitive workplace edge, today announced a holiday “meet-up” at the Four Seasons ART lounge on Monday, Dec. 13th, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., to introduce its Career Transitions program, the newest of three career acceleration classes GoGirl Academy (GGA) will offer in January.
Designed to help potential students meet GGA alumnae and staff and get information about GGA’s three career advancement courses, the happy hour event will also raise money for Gilda’s Club in support of a GGA alumna fighting breast cancer. The Four Seasons will donate $1 to Gilda’s Club for every drink purchased.
GGA was co-founded by Jenni Hogan, KIRO-TV’s morning traffic anchor, and Suzanne Keel-Eckmann, a firm director at Deloitte, where she leads its national corporate responsibility and sustainability programs. Both founders will be present to announce the Dress Rehearsal course for GGA’s new 10-week Career Transitions program which starts in late January.
Developed specifically for women making a major change in their lives such as starting a second career, launching a new business or returning to work after an extended absence, the Career Transitions program teaches students how to act confidently in new settings, make a strong first impression and be a standout wherever they go. Registration information is available at http://gogirlacademy.com/How_to_Apply.htm.
“We have noticed a real need to add our Transitions class after receiving a number of requests from women who are going through changes in their lives,” said Margo Myers, GGA Executive Director. “This course provides career guidance, as well as an opportunity for women to expand their personal networks.”
The meet-up comes as GGA wraps up its fall courses helping career women accelerate their success. Students with careers as diverse as technology, human resources, and radio news, polished their personal brand along with their communication, presentation and networking skills.
“GoGirl Academy has given me the additional tools and confidence to help me in my role as a leader,” said Cindy Olsen, VP Human Resources at Concur. “I have personally grown as a leader through the class exercises, which we continue to practice and build on over the 10 weeks. I’m excited to share this experience with others!”
GoGirl Academy is also launching the 10-week Career Acceleration and Career Launch programs in late January.
All of GGA’s weekly three-hour classes at Seattle’s Maxwell Hotel are limited to 8 to 12 women with similar experiences and goals to create group interaction and camaraderie. Each class member receives individual coaching and support from top experts in leadership and teamwork, personal style, effective business writing, public speaking, social media and networking.
GGA’s faculty includes recognized social media expert Shauna Causey, messaging expert Lorraine Howell, and leadership consultant Bronwyn Richards. At the end of the core 10-week program, graduates join a larger network of influential women who have made a promise to pay it forward.
