2022-03-01T10:06:34-05:00

March 2022 Photo on Unsplash By Shell Phelps Numerous professional women are leaving the workforce or downgrading their careers due to present trials and tribulations. It’s time to jump in and help alleviate this professional crisis for women! We need women to step up and reach out to support each other. Women are facing increased mental health challenges that are testing their confidence, which is needed to leverage their abilities as career-minded professionals. This includes high-ranking women in leadership roles to emerging professionals.  The top five struggles women still face in the workplace today are unequal treatment, practicing self-advocacy, trusting themselves, [...]

WOMAN POWER

March 2022 Photo by Chelsi Peter on Unsplash By Marilyn Pellini My age will be quite apparent when I tell you that women in my time were pretty much confined to being a nurse, teacher, or secretary. This was true even if they had attended college and perhaps had an advanced degree. Most women back then married young, had a family right away, and became stay-at-home moms. Some were frustrated by this strictly regulated role, while others felt this to be their plight as women, and there were definitely those who were totally fulfilled with this structure. I had a mom [...]

WOMEN IN FINANCIAL HISTORY

2022-03-01T10:07:09-05:00

March 2022 Photo by Mikhail Nilov on Unsplash By Nadine Burns As a woman in the financial industry, I often find myself in a room full of men — a situation that is, to be fair, becoming less common. According to the Certified Financial Planner® Board, women make up only 23% of CFP® Professionals; that number has not grown in the past 20 years. Many strong women have paved the way in this industry, and it’s good to look back and recognize those who made these strides. I’ve been lucky enough to attend a conference to hear Adena Friedman, the first [...]

ONE-HOUR SKILLET FOCACCIA

2022-03-01T10:07:24-05:00

March 2022 Photo on Unsplash by Haley Truong By Tanja Rohn-MacKenzie The smell of fresh-baked rosemary focaccia wafted through the library stacks, making my mouth water during the summer I worked in a third-floor book collection. The building caretaker lovingly shared her homemade focaccia with me; the rosemary was straight from the garden. So far away from home, my young self felt so nourished by this random act of kindness.  I finally found a recipe that comes close to that special delivery. May you have someone to share this with as well. I have no doubt you’ll love this chewy focaccia [...]

HABITAT CELEBRATES 20TH YEAR OF BUILDING HOMES FOR WOMEN

2022-03-01T10:07:42-05:00

March 2022 By Leah Tessman For 20 years, hundreds of women have joined together to help renovate a home in Washtenaw County for a local, hardworking woman as part of the Women Build project for Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley (HHHV). Each year, the women team up to fundraise, donate, and volunteer on the build site to fully renovate the home for the Habitat homebuyer of low- to mid-income.  “Women Build is a great opportunity for local women and partners to rally together to learn new skills and complete a home for a local woman,” said Sarah Stanton, HHHV CEO.
