Northeast Kingdom – Women LEAD (Leveraging Energy And Drive) is a new initiative led by Michelle Tarryk and Barbara Morrow with over two dozen women leaders and business owners from the Kingdom created to foster leadership in girls and women in the Northeast Kingdom. Women LEAD will launch with a fundraiser at The Eastside Restaurant & Pub on Monday, March 25th from 6PM to 8PM.
Women LEAD is in alignment with recommendations from the recent NEK Collaborative Leadership Development Task Force Action Plan. Recommendations include creating a NEK Leadership Institute as well as a project focusing on engaging NEK Women in Leadership Learning.
“This project has been an absolute thrill! I am in awe of the women who participated in the calendar and I am also very excited about the leadership opportunities that we will be able to bring to young girls throughout the kingdom. I look forward to folks coming out to join us in celebrating the women of the calendar and in supporting this initiative” Tarryk shared.
Please join us on March 25, 2019 from 6PM to 8PM for complimentary appetizers, a cash bar, and hear from several collaborators including Michelle Tarryk of Northeast Kingdom Learning Services, Inc, Katherine Sims of the NEK Collaborative, Alice Kitchel, State President of Business and Professional Women’s Club, Sunny Noelle Naughton of the Northeast Kingdom Young Professionals Network and Vermont Photographer Mary Claire Carroll who shared her talents in photographing our female leaders.
NEK Women: Setting the Pace, an April to March calendar features female leaders in the NEK and will be on sale for $15. Funds raised will go towards leadership opportunities for young women in Orleans, Caledonia and Essex counties.
