As a sponsor for this event since its inception, CBIZ MHM’s Linda Lauer welcomed the group sharing the value of women in our workplace.  Linda also noted the national firm’s development of business women through our Women’s Advantage program.

Carolyn Hardy of Chism Hardy Investments and Henderson Worldwide Investments headlined as the keynote. Working among ‘the good old boys’, she quickly realized the importance of using her relationships to her advantage. During her address, Carolyn spoke about how women should utilize their connections and “human collateral” to advance in their business endeavors, noting that “you will never make a sale if you call the receptionist.”

Overall, the group discussion was very empowering.  Many panelists discussed how women in business should lift each other up by partnering with one another rather than competing among the few women already in the room.

Other panelists included Sara Burnett from LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, Stacy McCall of ServicesMaster by Stratos, and Sarah Petschonek of Volunteer Odyssey.

A crowd of 200 gathered for the #BIZWomen event at the Brooks Museum. To read further coverage, view the Memphis Daily News article.

This year's Super Women in Business Awards was a memorable event recognizing the Mid-South's most influential women in business.  As a sponsor of the awards since its inception in 2012, we are proud to spotlight women playing a role in the success of their businesses and helping make the Memphis community a success through their involvement.

The awards luncheon was held at Hilton Memphis on Friday, August 28th. With 450 people in attendance, the crowd was energized as each Super Woman took the stage to accept a plaque and pink cape as well as to share ten words that described their idea of a "Super Woman," their award dedication, or their commitment to the city of Memphis. Though each woman's words were thoughtfully crafted, many chose to say more than their allotted ten words, and in doing so, donated a women’s clothing item for each word over ten to the DeNeuville Learning Center. Perhaps the most memorable selection came from Estella Mayhue-Greer of Mid-South Food Bank (pictured above right) when she said "To my family, you are the wind beneath my cape!"

The CBIZ Women's Advantage Group of Phoenix recently participated at the 2015 BizWomen Mentoring Monday event hosted by the Phoenix Business Journal at the Omni Montelucia Resort. Over 200 female business professionals from all around the State attended the event. Attendees were given the chance to spend 7 minutes with their selected mentors to share stories, advice and support. Our very own Zandra O'Keefe was selected as one of this year's mentors where she was able to mentor several women by sharing career advice and creating inroads for job placement. She successfully connected one mentee with one of her clients and they subsequently set up a job interview. Networking at it's finest! Below are a couple of pictures of our booth where we handed out Sprinkles cupcakes to attendees and of Zandra speaking to one of her mentees. The event was a great success and we look forward to future events dedicated to supporting the careers of Valley business women.

CBIZ was proud to be a national sponsor of the second annual Bizwomen Mentoring Monday event hosted by the Memphis Business Journal at Christian Brothers University on March 30, 2015. Linda Lauer, Lead Managing Director, was one of 40 female mentors participating in the event. Bringing together top female professionals in the city with hundreds who are eager to learn from them, Mentoring Monday is truly an unforgettable experience. This year, the event spanned across 43 cities in the U.S. and included 1700 mentors and 8000 mentees.

In Memphis alone,  over 220 women gathered in the CBU Canale Arena. After a short presentation from Bizwomen.com editor, Mary Johnson, the coaching began. Quick 7-minute conversations were inspiring, informative, and sometimes just the beginnings of relationships carried outside of the event.

The 2015 class of Memphis Bizwomen Mentors combined a wide variety of female professionals from across the city in various industries, from healthcare to marketing and accounting to fashion.
