President's Corner

Deborah Shaw-Boatner - picOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness month in the United States and abroad. This time every year there are “Pink Out” annual campaigns to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. There has been a lot of progress addressing this health issue – but we still have a long way to go.

Screening and early detection are keys to improving your chances for survival. If you haven’t had your annual women’s exam – please consider doing so this month. We want you to be a healthy EWTG member and live a long healthy life.

October also represents the time of year when we are putting the finishing touches on the annual professional development conference. I am excited to announce our well known and distinguished morning keynote speaker.

Denise Hamilton is Founder and CEO of WatchHerWork.com, a digital learning platform for professional women. A highly requested speaker and trainer as well as a media personality her platform has reached and served thousands of women all over the world. Denise has developed workshops and programs that have empowered the lives of women, and altered the trajectory of careers and businesses all over the country. Her library of over 6,000 videos providing professional advice to women from all walks of life is based on 25 years’ experience as a corporate executive with Fortune 500 companies. She has been featured on National Public Radio (NPR), Forbes, Huffington Post, CBS, NBC, and many more.

For several years we have been pursuing training workshops that will allow you to earn Professional Development Credits (PDC) or Continuing Education Units (CEU). Thanks to our President-Elect Tanya Skaarup, we are pleased to announce our addition of workshop courses that include presenters with Austin Human Resource Management Association (AHRMA)/Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Project Management Institute (PMI) certification. Check the website for more details on the conference certification courses we are offering and your accrediting body regarding recertification or continuing education credits.

In addition, we have other headliner speakers such as William Kuntz - Retired Executive Director, Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation; Toya Cirica Bell - Deputy Chief Ethics Officer, Texas Health and Human Services System; Sheila Craig - Associate Commissioner, Health and Human Services Commission and

Brandy Norris - Assistant Chief of Police, College Station Police Department just to name a few.

Ladies, you do not want to miss out on the annual conference this year. NOTE: Men are welcome too! I assure you that you will be the beneficiary of information that will enhance and change your professional and personal life. You will get a chance to network with other professional women – meet new friends and renew friendships with ladies you have met at previous conferences. Each year I make a concerted effort to meet different women from other parts of the state as well as Austin. I am always on the lookout for opportunities to start another affiliate chapter as well as increasing my professional network group. It is my hope when you leave you will join the ranks of other “Super Women” – empowered and ready to conquer the challenges of being a professional woman in leadership.

Please join me and the EWTG team in Austin on November 19, 2018. I look forward to seeing you there.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR EWTG EXPERIENCE
2018 Conference Keynote Speaker

We are honored to welcome Debjani Biswas as this year’s lunchtime keynote speaker at the EWTG conference on November 19th. International bestselling author and Power Leader Debjani Biswas has a unique combination of executive and corporate experience (20+ years at PepsiCo, Texas Instruments etc.) and education (Chemical Engineering, MBA, MS Org. Strategy). She received the 2017 GDAACC Award in Journalism for “Diversity Beyond Boundaries’ and is a 2013 NAPW ‘Woman of the Year’ recipient. She is currently CEO and Founder of Coachieve, LLC which specializes in inclusion and leadership solutions. Biswas also serves on the Board of Directors of her Engineering Alumni organization IIT-NT. Six years ago, as a change agent, while an executive in a Fortune 50 company, Ms. Biswas realized she was part of a global epidemic of the ‘miserably successful’. Biswas then embarked on a journey of self-discovery, transforming herself into an international bestselling author, keynote speaker and trusted strategist for CEOs and leaders. Her first book was selected by Barnes & Noble stores; she later completed a US Barnes & Noble Book Tour. Her second book “Miserably Successful No More’ was ranked #1 in Amazon in the US for its category and is an international bestseller. ‘#UsToo’ was released in June 2018 and asks how women and men together can bridge the gender gap in the wake of #MeToo. Ms. Biswas’ groundbreaking, original frameworks are being used in 23 countries.

From the Ronald McDonald House Service Project…

I am so grateful to EWTG for the opportunity to participate in the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) community service event. I personally know the power and depth of each volunteer meal provided at RMH. For over nine months in 2004-2005, I was a resident of the RMH in Houston as my 10-year old son underwent two open heart surgeries and ultimately a heart transplant. The Ronald McDonald House provided a welcome respite from the stress and pressure of being a hospital inhabitant and caregiver. Conversation and time spent with individuals from the groups that brought meals to RMH offered community and compassion to an isolating situation. Readily available meals also left one less thing for an anxious parent to worry about. I found this to still be the case during the EWTG service event when I met the young mother who had come back to the RMH after a long morning at the hospital with her son. She came in to grab a bite to eat and get some rest before a turn-around-trip to San Angelo to pick up her husband. She was so grateful for the meal and welcomed the social exchange. It is heart-warming to know the experience lifted her spirits and hopefully energized her for her journey, both physically and mentally. People often volunteer for such efforts to offer support. I found that I received a benefit far more immeasurable. Thank you EWTG for coordinating and offering this opportunity!

"Nailing the Interview”


Featuring

Shalyn Bridges

Texas Legislative Council

You've heard it said that "You never get a second chance to make a first impression," and when it comes to job interviews, making a good impression is just the beginning. Ms. Bridges’ presentation focused on job interviewing, the impressions we make during the interview. Ms. Bridges helped the audience to see themselves from the perspective of the potential employer and what attributes are favorable to creating a favorable impression. Ms. Bridges drew from her experience and knowledge to help members develop strategies for presenting themselves in the best way possible when seeking new employment opportunities.

“Leadership: How to Identify and Live It”


Featuring

Carla James

Deputy Executive Director, TDLR

She began the presentation by asking those in attendance to think about the best leaders we have ever known and then to consider if we, ourselves, may be that leader. She added that we may not be finished yet with our leadership journey. She went on to say that each of us should:

  • Emulate the things we like, not what we don’t like
  • Contemplate the things we have seen and done
  • Give ourselves some grace
  • Constantly learn
  • Keep an open mind
  • Take a chance
  • Watch what others do
  • Take time to work on ourselves
  • Take time to sit back and think about our capabilities as a leader
  • Treat people with respect
  • Learn from others
  • Give people something to think about
  • Think about how we would want others to treat our children

Ms. James discussed her journey into leadership and stated that she had no idea she would be a leader. Her mom was her idea of a leader and taught her that nothing can hold back a strong woman. She also taught her that if she wanted to accomplish something, she should just do it! Ms. James was taught to find someone she could follow or blaze the trail herself and she has blazed quite a trail in her career.

Silent Auction


One of the highlights of the EWTG Annual Conference is the chance to visit the Silent Auction tables and bid on some of the awesome items that have been donated.

This year I have the honor of serving as co-chair of the Silent Auction Committee with Uniyme Udosen. We are actively looking for volunteers and donations for this year’s Silent Auction.

If you are interested in donating to the Silent Auction or you know someone who is, please guide them to the 2018 EWTG Conference links on the EWTG website. Not sure what to donate, no problem! We will be happy to give ideas, and we’ll even do the shopping for you!

Volunteers are essential for hosting a successful Silent Auction. If you are interested in joining the conference committee, email your contact information to ewtg@ewtg.org. Be sure to include “Silent Auction Committee” in the subject line. We look forward to working with you to ensure this year’s Silent Auction is a success.

American Red Cross - logo EWTG’s third Community Service project is working with the American Red Cross. Our project team will be collecting greeting cards for the VA Hospital. Please bring your donation to any EWTG event during October and November. The Red Cross staff needs “Thank-You”, “Thinking of You”, “Christmas”, and blank cards. We will take single cards, boxed cards, and opened card packets. The Red Cross allows signed Thank-you notes but requires Christmas cards be NOT signed. Please do not seal the envelopes.

Supporting America's Military & Veteran Families. Serving those who serve our nation.
The Red Cross helps members of the military, veterans and their families prepare for, cope with, and respond to, the challenges of military service. The American Red Cross of Central & South Texas Region, headquartered in Austin, serves over 6.3 million people and 80 counties. Travis County has 44,000 veterans.

Volunteerism in VA & Military Hospitals
Red Cross volunteers serve in Veterans Administration (VA) and military hospitals across the nation and around the world.

Thank-a-Hero by send support and sending thanks.
Help us to spread gratitude to our service members, veterans and military families through our Thank-a-Hero program. The Thank-a-Hero program allows us to share our gratitude for these selfless men, women, and children year-round; not just during the holidays. We are accepting cards that will be distributed to service members, veterans, and their families within the American Red Cross Central & South Texas Region.

Your contribution can be fun and easy. Families, schools, corporations, non-profits, individuals and more have all participated in the past and continue to do so today. Other ideas include hosting card and banner making events with friends, neighbors, or colleagues.



Thank You Card Guidelines

 

  • Ensure all cards are signed and please provide cards without envelopes, or in unsealed envelopes
  • Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member”, “Dear Veteran”, or “Dear Military Family” and write your best wishes and a heartfelt thank you for their service. Make it in your own words – it means a lot.
  • Do not include email, phone numbers, social media contact information, or home addresses on the cards: the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
  • Do not include cash, gift cards, or personal photos.
  • Please refrain from choosing cards with glitter or using loose glitter as it can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors.
  • Cards can be purchased or homemade. Card making parties are a lot of fun!

If you or your group are interested in sorting or delivering these cards to our military community, or if you may need further information, please contact Ames Davis via phone (512) 929-1234 or email ames.davis2@redcross.org.
