Spring General Meeting May 2017
Our Spring General Meeting and Luncheon was held at Holbrook Palmer Park, on the Water Tower garden grass. A catered lunch was served, featuring Mexican dishes in honor of Cinco De Mayo.
After a short meeting regarding the status of the Friends and election of the 2017-2018 slate of officers, Katie Miserany, head of marketing at LeanIn.Org spoke about Sheryl Sandberg’s new best-selling book “Option B” which explores how our human spirit allows us to overcome hardships to persevere and rediscover joy. She referred to Sheryl’s tragic loss of her husband, while vacationing in Mexico, and explained how the accident happened as well as what Sheryl did to overcome her grief. “Option B” evolved from her experience.
Katie also talked about the ever-changing dynamic in the workforce for women, including how women can return to the workforce after being “out of the market” for a period of time. It was an inspirational and motivational event.
