Networking is not a dirty wordâ€¦As we get older sometimes it is hard to network and the younger generation does not seem to know how to approach, network and help! One local organization is changing the way to network especially if you are a women looking for a career change or maybe returning to work after years at home.
The Second Chapter SisterhoodÂ is a community of like-minded women who gather in a casual, social setting to inquire and inspire, and help each other over the barriers between themselves and their goals. This is a unique networking and skill-building series for women in transition (whether it be for a job change, career change, or life change â€“ are you kids heading to college soon?) The way it is designed it to both elevate the spirit and educate the mind.
I attended the Lexington event this week at the Inn at Hasting ParkÂ and finally got to meet the lovely Kim MilesÂ in person (we met on twitter!) She has the best energy and after attending one of her networking events you will have the motivation to do anything! There is usually a guest speaker at the event and at this particular session it was Kim Meninger, an ICF-certified executive coach with a proven track record of success in the high-tech industry. Her talk was the No More Negative Self Talk: Tackling The Imposter Syndrome. Informative and educational (you know as women we can struggle with self-confidence at times!) we got to meet in pairs to learn from each otherâ€™s experience. What I liked most is when you first arrived everyone was welcoming and event after the event a few of us stayed to network a bit more.
Join the sisterhood to experience the â€œmix, mingle and mastermind” networking events which are usually 4 times a year and can include brainstorming, life/work balance topics, style sessions, branding and linked in insights.

The next two meetings take place in the September/October timeframe and I will update you all on dates and locations. For those of you who live closer to the South Shore, there is a Sisterhood Chapter in Hingham as well!
