Women & Hi Tech invites our members to join a small group discussion with Rochelle Leavell, Senior Solutions Architect at Salesforce, Karen Hyman, Head of Data Management for Defense at Rolls-Royce and Marla Holread, President of Shift Leadership, on October 19. We will be discussing the importance of volunteering.
You may be thinking that you don’t have time to take on the added responsibility of volunteering. Most of us are busy enough with work, school, family, friends, and other responsibilities. But volunteering isn’t about the quantity of time you devote; it’s the quality.
Volunteering is more than just your opportunity to do something great for your community. It can also have a major impact on your career and professional reputation. Hear from our speakers about how volunteering has improved their lives, and share your stories as well in this interactive discussion. Rochelle Leavell
