Our monthly event offerings include a more formal luncheon at the top of the month and a mid-month casual breakfast meet up. Both events provide ample networking and educational opportunities, with top-level speakers brought in from major corporations, along with our very own BCPWN members serving as presenters. We're delighted to also offer complimentary private events to our membership along with special event sip and shops, happy hours and health and wellness outings at local establishments.

    BCPWN Member Exclusive: The Gratitude Exchange

    November is the month of giving thanks, and BCPWN wants to once again celebrate and show gratitude for our membership in a special way.  The Gratitude Exchange -- a gesture of camaraderie, cheer, and support from one BCPWN member to another. 

    Developed and rolled out last year by BCPWN Members Cat Garruto and Lisa Pisano, the program comes at a time when we all need it the most -- to show compassion, the human touch, and a festive spirit.

    Throughout the month of November, each registered member will surprise a randomly assigned recipient with a Gratitude Basket as a way to boost morale, network, and inspire deeper human connections with each other.  Plus, who doesn't love a little surprise for all of their hard work these days?!

    Here's how it works:

    • Join us on Wednesday, 11/10 at 7:30pm for a social Zoom get together, where those registered will be partnered with a fellow BCPWN Member who will be her "gratitude recipient".
    • Everyone on the zoom will have a chance to share their likes/dislikes (i.e. allergies, preferences, etc.) so that baskets can be customized and personal to the recipient.
    • Members mutually make arrangements to give/receive before 11/30 -- the idea is to spend 5-10 minutes socially distanced on the doorstep to connect a bit and enjoy a human exchange.
    • There is no fee to register for the event on 11/10!  Once registrants are partnered up, it is simply whatever you decide to fill your basket with.  We're recommending a $30-$40 basket value, and that members include some of your business cards and company information for purposes of networking.
    • The group of Gratitude Exchangers will get together via Zoom in early December to reconvene on how the experience went for everyone.

    Questions? Contact us at info@eventgrp.com.  Hope to see you on 11/10!

    Zoom link will be sent 24 hours in advance to all registered participants.

    Author Visit -- Betrayed by Work: Women's Stories of Trauma, Healing and Hope after Being Fired

    Betrayed by Work: Women’s Stories of Trauma, Healing and Hope after Being Fired, by Julia Erickson MBA and Suzanne Vosburg PhD, offers practical job loss recovery tools for professional women. Erickson, an executive and career coach as well as a survivor of being fired, has coached many people who have experienced job loss. This and Vosburg’s long-held interest in workplace dynamics led to this book.

    When women get fired, it is often devastating, traumatic, and isolating. How, then, does a woman navigate the emotional impact of this event? With other women. In Betrayed by Work, authors Julia Erickson, MBA, and Suzanne Vosburg, PhD, bear witness to the stories of working women who lost their jobs. Their stories describe what happened immediately and in the aftermath of being let go, validate women’s feelings about being fired, and offer a source of hope and companionship to women coping with their own job loss.

    The book is also an excellent guide for people who know someone who has suffered sudden job loss. And it contains recommendations for employers who wish to end employment relationships more compassionately.

    Suzanne Vosburg and Julia Erickson will provide an exclusive author visit with the BCPWN community in November and will address:

    • Why they wrote the book,
    • Present a selection of material from the book,
    • Their contributors: who did and did not contribute and why,
    • What they learned from writing the book,
    • What the working together process was like - Why they worked so well together?
    • What's next...

    How to Access the Zoom Presentation:  

    ***24 hours before the event, you'll receive a reminder email from BCPWN with Zoom log in details. Please check your email inbox and/or spam folder for this message. ***
