Women’s Lecture Series
This is a four-part series addressing different issues facing women with topics such as stress management, nutrition, and safety, etc. Doctors or health educators from Virtua Hospital are guest speakers.
Women’s Mentoring Event Series
Women in the community are invited to participate in a free career mentoring event on Monday, October 15 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. The mentoring event will kick-off with registration and networking from 5:30 – 6 p.m. at Rowan College at Burlington County’s Student Success Center Cafeteria on the Mount Laurel Campus. From there, mentors will be formally introduced followed by a “speed-dating” format of participants moving from table to table to have one-on-one discussions with several of the mentors. The event will conclude with a second networking session, where participants and mentors will have the opportunity to exchange business cards
The event will bring established professional women from a variety of industries together with women looking to build their professional networks. To attend as a “mentee” there is no age restriction, however, women ranging from juniors in high school to two years post-grad are encouraged to attend.
All participants should bring plenty of business cards to foster on-going connections among the women. Women without business cards can request that the County provide them through the online registration form free of charge.
We want to hear from you! The Women's Advisory Council is inviting all women in Burlington County to take a brief survey on services and programs. Have a suggestion, let us hear it! Take the survey here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/BurlCoWomenSurvey
