What We’re Doing
Connected Ambassadors Program
This program facilitates the formation of local Connected Women groups. More than 70 Connected Ambassadors across the country help to promote professional development and community involvement.
Pub Hub is the next generation book club sponsored by Connected Women. A great professional development and networking opportunity, the club focuses on lively conversations on professional topics related to a wide range of publications, podcasts, videos, articles, and blogs.
Connected Women is committed to bettering our communities. With a strong desire to build connections and give back, the group has provided opportunities for employees to donate to Dress for Success, support the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, and raise awareness for breast cancer by wearing pink.
These events allow Connected Women to engage and provide resources across a global company. Past livestream broadcasts have included advice from female leaders as well as professional development opportunities.
These roundtable discussions are a chance for employees – male and female – across the firm to meet with female leaders, ask questions, and build community. Connected Conversations provide an opportunity to share ideas across offices and encourage open communications.
