About the Women's S.I.G.

- What is the Women's SIG about?

Making friends who will help each other through their job searches and careers. This is not a women-only club: men are encouraged to attend our meetings and to volunteer to help make this world a better place for all.

- How are we organized?

We are a growing team of 22 volunteers. Our names are listed below under each of our respective initiatives.

Our team is supported by Charlotte Leslie (CharlotteLeslie@TheFENG.org) who works for the FENG and provides us valuable help and insights. She and her colleagues run the members' directory, prepare and send the invitations for our meetings, and will address your questions about the FENG or organize a demo of the website for you.

Each volunteer works independently. When they need feedback or help, they can contact the Steering Committee, whose members are listed below. Each volunteer is free to join and leave the Steering Committee at all times by sending a simple email to all existing members.

- Where and when do the meetings take place?

We hold three types of meetings:

1. The virtual coffee with friends: every third Tuesday at 10 a.m. US ET, Isabelle organizes "Coffee machine teleconferences" whose purpose is to make friends who will help each other through their job searches and careers. There is generally no agenda, speaker, or slide deck. We simply drink coffee and share experiences, preoccupations, and successes just like any group of friends does.

2. The teleconferences with guest speakers and the webinars: if you would like to organize one or several on a topic that will help more women reach senior leadership positions, simply submit your proposal to Bruce (brucelynn@thefeng.org) who is FENG co-chair.

3. The in-person events: Jean, Janelle, Rosemary, Susan, Trinh, Tracey, Kathy, and Adhi have volunteered to organize meetings in California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas respectively. Meeting organizers are encouraged to partner with existing women-only and mixed-gender organizations, and to ask them that we attend their events or organize joint events. The goal is to make as many friends as possible in order to help each other reach the C-suite.
