May’s Women’s Alliance Luncheon featured
businesswoman, philanthropist and community advocate Christina Gears, Founder
and CEO of Creating & Managing Wealth, LLC, who spoke on Empowering Women
Financially. Gears focused on how “when it comes to the higher levels of
leadership, the glass ceiling is in the ‘middle’ – women are just not there.”
Gears spoke on how women can overcome being in the “middle” by taking control of
their career and gaining financial independence. Attendees also heard from the 2012
WA scholarship recipient, Cathy Pham who will be graduating from high school on
June 2 and starting college in the fall.
The next Women’s
Alliance Luncheon will be on
Wednesday, June 20 and will feature guest speaker Catherine Monson, CEO of
FASTSIGNS International, Inc. Recently, Monson was featured in the CBS
hit series “Undercover Boss.” Since her appointment as CEO of
FASTSIGNS International, Inc. in early 2009, Catherine Monson has been on a
mission to advance the brand, from that of a sign and banner provider, to a
visual ideas company for all kinds of businesses.
