Women2Women, a special program of the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance, encourages women to create connections, gain knowledge, open doors and build strategic alliances, and much more. Our goal is to develop more women leaders in Berks County by providing a forum where women from diverse backgrounds can learn, share ideas and mentor each other.
Just imagine what women can accomplish when we work together. Connecting and networking with each other will allow us to harness our power and impact Greater Reading.
“Women2Women isn’t just a group of ladies that meets to talk about their day. It’s a group of women who come together to become leaders of their communities, businesses, and organizations. At events, you’re constantly in a position to network and connect with others who are similar to yourself: an ambitious woman that wants to get things done. Even if you aren’t sure what direction you want to go in, this is where you’ll figure it out. Bring your ambitions and talents and Women2Women will bring the opportunities and direction. This is where women of all ages can come together to connect with each other, grow as individuals and groups, and lead in their communities. This is where ambition meets opportunity. This is where you need to be.”
Courtney Coffman, 33, learned very early in her career that passive behavior was not an option. Coffman, who was hired in April 2017 as vice president of finance and chief financial officer for Penn State Health St. Joseph, spoke recently during a luncheon of Berks Women2Women at the Crowne Plaza Reading, Wyomissing. She addressed “Walking the Tightrope: Assertive vs. Aggressive.”
Ralph Lauren said, “Fashion is not necessarily about labels. It’s not about brands. It’s about something else that comes from within you.” Susan Golembiski, owner and designer at Frock, has made a career out of helping Berks County women discover that elusive thing that comes from within called style.
