Greetings from the Founder Dennis Kennedy

Dennis KennedyThe greatest opportunity one can receive is being given the honor of service to your community. I am proud to be in the role of Chief Executive Officer of the National Women’s Council (NWC), a non-profit organization, dedicated to developing and empowering women of all backgrounds, classes, and ages. The NWC was founded with a vision to be the premier organization for women’s equality. It is my goal to promote economic, political, and workplace equality. The NWC serves to advocate, empower and educate with an eye towards future viability. The workplace environment today is constantly changing.

Finish Strong in 2015!

“Finish Strong!” What does it mean to finish strong? You usually hear it at the end of a pursuit like a race, a game or a goal and it’s often encouraged by a coach, mentor or friend when you’ve already given most if not all of what you think you’ve got. But what does finishing strong look like? As we come to the close of the year and I begin thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas plans, when the kids will be out of school and I plan to take some much needed (and deserved, I might add) time off, there’s nothing I’d like more than to cruise to the end of 2015 rather than continuing to push.

2016 Women in Leadership Symposiums Take Place Across the U.S and Canada

Women in Leadership SymposiumIn 2016, the National Women’s Council will be hosting their Women in Leadership Symposiums (WILS) across the United States and Canada. These symposiums bring together a diverse mix of successful women leaders who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues, will educate, inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to advance within their organizations.

Identifying as an Entrepreneur

Being an entrepreneur often has you deep in the details of what needs to be done to close out the year. The chance to stop and reflect may seem like a luxury. Yet reflection is a key skill for entrepreneurs and leaders alike, and if you intend to finish strong in 2015 it is a must-do, not a nice-to-do. One potential topic of reflection is your identity as an entrepreneur.
