November Hello



As if you could have forgotten, it is now November and just one day away from Election Day. We hope by now you have made a plan to vote but if not, do so now!

Among all of the distractions today (COVID, politics, family, work, friends, pets...the list goes on), it is too easy to feel small and overwhelmed. That’s why we at AWM:NYC want you to be a little selfish. Make the time to do things for you and only you. Sound impossible? Let us help. In our first It’s About Me Mondayevent, Understand The Price of Distraction brings together a panel of remarkable executives to share how they find balance among it all. On Monday, November 9th Career Coach, Roseanne Amoils, Founder, What's Next Club leads the discussion and shares her expertise on career planning, leadership development and the ongoing struggle to feel "balanced" between your work and home life. She will be joined by Jeannette Trout, SVP HR Lead at Publicis Health Media, Lauren Lawhon, Chief Operating Officer, Health Union and Cyd Falkson, CMO Podcast Notes & Client Service Director, MediaSense.
