Leadership Series

DATE: Wednesday, August 18, 2021

HCC Kittredge Center

Holyoke Community College will resume its Women's Leadership Luncheon Series on Wed., Aug. 25, with business coach and strategist Lynn Turner leading the first of a three-part class on "Vision Boards."

What is a vision board? "A tangible representation of your dreams," Turner explains.

The second and third parts of Turner's class will be held on Sept. 1 and Sept. 8. Those and the rest of the fall 2021 HCC Women's Leadership Luncheon Series sessions will take place on Wednesdays over Zoom from noon to 1:15 p.m.

During each session, participants will join prominent women leaders for discussions on relevant topics and ideas to help their leadership development. They will also have the opportunity to form a supportive network to help navigate their own careers.
