Why are women under-represented in certain professions or when delivering specific services? Is it because women don’t know how to play the game or are discounted? Whatever the reason is, facing this hurdle means making sure you are in the right place at the right time.

One way to increase visibility is through membership associations, especially if the mission targets specific business needs requiring your expertise.

Women can face additional challenges when balancing a family and professional career. Evening meetings may interfere with personal obligations. Evaluate if the investment is critical to building your network and business.

Here is an upcoming New York Upstate event that may be of interest:

Janet Nelson, President, J Nelson Enterprise, LLC and The Work Out Consortium is active in an organization called the Turnaround Management Association (TMA).

In a couple of weeks on September 15th, the association is holding a women’s networking event. Why? Because women are under-represented in the upstate NY Chapter!

There are several areas of expertise the Turnaround Management Association is hoping to attract:

  • General Business
  • Consulting
  • Banking & Finance
  • Law
  • Other activities consistent with the TMA mission
