This week, the CBIZ Women's Advantage second Networking Circles group from the Memphis office graduated from their program. This year-long peer networking and professional development program involves a series of small group meetings and program action items. Seven women participated in the group and all came together for a small graduation luncheon at Interim Restaurant & Bar in East Memphis.
One of the goals of the program is to integrate it with CBIZ's ethical and established business principles, in turn, creating a measurable impact on CBIZ's business development and revenue generation.
The first graduating class of Networking Circles participants helped as mentors throughout the second group's program.
Linda Lauer, Executive Board Member of CBIZ Women's Advantage, served as the second group's leader, facilitating the eight sessions throughout the year.
Linda is also a Managing Director in the Memphis office of CBIZ MHM, leading the Employee Benefit Plan Audit segment. She'll be a featured panelist at The Daily News' Women & Business Seminar, February 27, 2014 at the Brooks Museum.
