As professional communicators, we want to reach as wide an audience as possible, but sometimes we inadvertently write or say something that derails our message. Join AWC-SB on Wednesday, November 3, 5:30 p.m. on Zoom, to hear from educators and diversity advocates Cheri Gurse and Anita Perez Ferguson, who will discuss best practices and ways to evaluate and elevate our language.
On September 8, AWC-SB launched its 2022 season with professional storyteller and AWC-SB Woman of Achievement, Kymberlee Weil. She shared tips for creating a powerful elevator pitch. “Use language that makes it compelling and memorable,” she said. “Tell a little less, so the listener wants more…!” Above all, “Be so memorable they can’t ignore you.” Read a recap of the event here, written by Justine Sutton.
We want to update you about AWC-SB events. We canceled our April 1 meeting but plan to host “Rock Your Linked In Profile” on May 6. At this point it seems likely that meeting will happen virtually. More details to follow. The AWC-SB board decided to reschedule the Women of Achievement event honoring Barbara Ben-Horin and Luz Reyes-Martin for Friday, October 23. Both of these women continue to perform heroic work on behalf of our community during this crisis. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments in the fall.
