Talk about late notice. Here is a free conference for women scientists and technologists, and it starts tomorrow. Maybe you can still get in. “Retooling for an Economy that Can Handle Curves” is Friday, May 21, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Conference Center at Mercer.
It features Sarita Felder, a coaching and branding consultant, and Sandi Webster & Peggy McHale, authors of “Black and White Strike Gold.” Breakout sessions include cultivating advisotrs, marketing who you are, entrepreneurship and ‘intra’ preneurship. The host is NJ State Employment and Training Commission Council on Gender Parity in Labor and Education. Funding is by BIO-1, coordination by the Center for Women and Work.
Lunch is included in the “free” price, and if you can still register, here is where to do it. Or maybe just show up? Or call 732-445-1244.
The following day, Saturday, May 22, from 11 to 3 p.m. the Princeton Public Library and SCORE co-host a small business fair. Expanding from last year, it will spread out from the Community Room into the Albert Hinds Plaza, and it is a great opportunity to network. Last year we met the CEO of a British pharma service company, just off the airplane. He came to be introduced to the Princeton business community.
A bonus: U.S. 1 Business Directories will be on sale at a discount.
One more: a “Professionals in Transition” workshop hosted by the Mercer Regional Chamber on Thursday, May 27, 4 to 5 p.m., before the “Event under the Tent” starts at 5 p.m. Robin Fogel, consultant, and Steve Szmutko of Drexel’s Le Bow College of Business will speak. Cost, $10, pre registration required.
