HELP SEVEN SISTERS KEEP ON KEEPING ON!
Note from Jen McNally, Smith '94, the Seven Sisters founder:
I love being able to bring together the Seven Sisters community in a way that has never been done before. We are the first and only place for Seven Sisters alums and current students to network and connect. We have over 50k Alums and current students engaging across all our different platforms. 


From the Newsletter to the Website to the Educational and Social Zoom Programs, there are costs that are growing as we expand. I want to continue to provide exceptional content, dynamic conversations, ways for people to find Jobs and Housing and to connect in your own towns and industries. 

If you could contribute $5, $10, $20, $50 ($100 plus gets you some swag!) -really whatever you can, so we can continue on our mission, it will help me to pay the bills and continue to grow this amazing network.
Maintaining the Zoom, Newsletter and website are expensive. 
We have NO affiliation with any of the colleges and are sustained by my personal own funds.
THANK YOU for YOUR SUPPORT! And thank you to the people who have asked "how can I help?" and "what can we contribute to keep this going?". 

And I know not everyone is in a position to help, so if you are that is great, but if you 
aren't, that is ok too, everyone is always welcome no matter what!

Rock Your Strengths
Thursday, March 25th NOON ET

We've all had those days where everything seems to go just right - where we’re truly rockin’ it. Based on the Clifton Strengths assessment, learn how to have more days that you are maximizing your potential, reaching your goals and raising more money. Gallup research has shown that employees who use their strengths are six times more engaged in their jobs and three times happier in life - and who wouldn’t want that? Colleen will walk you through some simple steps to recognize your strengths and be more confident in rockin’ them each and every day. 

Takeaways:

  • Learn to leverage the way you naturally make decisions, communicate and get things done

  • Let go of the desire to be well-rounded

  • Use your strengths to meet your goals and your team’s goals
