The “Maximize Your Career – Business Tools for Women over 50” (MYC) conference is delighted to welcome Over 40 Females as a new sponsor. The event will be from 8:15 am – 4 pm Aug. 28 at DePaul University/Naperville.
The Chicago Chapter of Over 40 Females headed by Managing Director Shannon Bednowicz was launched in April of 2013. The parent organization was founded in 2010 by Judy Goss after meeting and listening to the needs of thousands of women as an editor and national TV spokesperson for More Magazine.
“We are not just another networking group,” Shannon said. “We focus on helping employed women and those in transition further their careers, start a business, build relationships, increase confidence, improve health awareness and gain information about fashion and beauty.
“We specifically connect a community of women over 40 to increase awareness for our demographic on an international scale and create a higher standard of pride and confidence
for the generations of Over 40 Females to come,” Shannon said.
“We are especially pleased to welcome this community of women over 40 to the conference,” said Lillian Bjorseth, MYC creator and producer. “We want to share what Boomer women are experiencing in the work place to better prepare those who will reach that age in the next 10 years.”
The Chicago Over 40 Females chapter meets the first or second Tuesday of the month in the northwestern suburbs and alternate the third or fourth Wednesday of the month between the western suburbs and downtown Chicago. To learn more about the group, visit www.over40females.com.
