Last month, The Execu|Search Group participated in the Professional Women’s Group (PWG) Dress for Success event. Lisa Carver, a Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Temporary division, is a co-chair of the nonprofit organization, and she assisted in organizing the event. “Every month, we invite a keynote speaker to discuss a specific topic. In September, we featured a panel of executives from Bayer Pharma who shared their career journeys with the women in attendance,” says Lisa. With over 40 attendees, there was an excellent conversation about how women can find their next job and advocate for themselves in the workplace. “We wanted to inspire women to network with each other and put in the work in order to move up in their career,” says Lisa. “Plus, we wanted to encourage these professionals to go above and beyond in their own office and take calculated risks in order to get ahead.” Through the question and answer session, Lisa says that she could see the connections forming in the room. Dress for Success is an international nonprofit organization focused on empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing them with the tools they need. Since launching in 1997, they have expanded to 145 cities and have helped more than 925,000 women work toward self-sufficiency.
