As the legendary Parnassah Network grew to encompass all of the Parnassah needs of Klal Yisroel, it became apparent that a division was necessary to cater exclusively to women, speaking directly to their unique position and challenges.
The Women In The Workforce division, ably coordinated by Tova Herskovitz, LSW, strives to meet the needs of working women at every stage of their career. From fresh seminary graduates to accomplished CEO’s seeking similarly successful frum women with whom to network, to talented mothers who have taken a hiatus from the working world to raise their growing families, Women in the Workforce offers a high level of support and professional education for every woman.
Working women continue to blend roles and expectations, conflict and coordination, balance and fulfillment in their many obligations. For frum women, the challenge can be even greater.
At the core of WIW is an executive committee of women successful in their respective fields. These professionals in fields such as law, media, accounting, nonprofits, consulting and more give up of their time and expertise to shape the direction of the organization in a manner that would prove beneficial to Jewish women everywhere.
As the date for the highly anticipated Parnassah Expo draws near, plans are in place for an intensive regimen of workshops and networking opportunities for women at every stage of their career. Women in the Workforce is commandeering an entire ballroom at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center for its programming, through which every woman seeking to maximize her parnassah will find invaluable tools and guidance.
A full lineup of speakers and workshops are scheduled for both March 17 and 18 of the Expo. Presentations will include relevant topics such as work/ life balance, legal issues pertaining to female employees, technology tools, time management skills, and viable career options for frum women.
Attendees at the Expo will be able to access and connect with many outstanding women. Among those presenting and attending will be Rebbetzin Faigie Horowitz, Touro College career services, Leah Zagelbaum, Director of Communications Agudath Israel of America; Rivka Sender of Hasevivah; Mrs. Chanie Jacobowitz, Director of Community Affairs at Beis Medrash Govoha; Chaya Fishman, founder and director of The Jewish Woman Entrepreneur; Janette Levey Frisch, employment/ HR attorney, and Estie Rand, consultant and coach Strand Business Consulting.
By bringing a diverse group of women together and providing a varied and dynamic schedule of events, the program for women at the Expo will be beneficial to every attendee in whatever stage they find themselves and within whatever field they work.
The Parnassah Expo will take place at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison, NJ on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 17thand 18th. For more information or to register as an attendee, please contact [email protected] or visit womeninworkforce.com or call 732-746-0305
