What We Do
Weaving Women storytelling is a network that provides leadership and life skills development, while advocating to provide a platform for social change. Its goal is to create a village of women resources that lead to self-sustainability.
One of our many stories as women is sustaining the workplace. If you are the professional, working a non-traditional job, manager, stay at home mom, providing service or working several jobs, there is a successful path that we want to share. Employers look for the candidate that fits the qualifications of the position, but more importantly it is the adapting to the work environment that will make your qualifications shine. We suggest these ‘life skills’ that will have you shine.
