New IMC USA Women Consultants Group to Meet Online Starting April 4, 2019 at 5 PM E.T.
Wednesday, April 3, 2019
Fort Lauderdale, Florida — April 3, 2019 — The Institute of Management Consultants USA announces the start of a new, online Women Consultants Group to foster added engagement and a supportive community for its women members. The Women Consultants Group will meet monthly on the first Thursday of the month starting April 4, 2019. The purpose of the group is to have a forum where women consultants can get to know and support each other in business and in living a full life.
“A group of IMC USA women created the Women Consultants Group as a forum to foster engagement and growth and add more value for our women members” says IMC USA VP of Marketing and Certified Management Consultant® Jennifer Beever. “The Women Consultants Group is an example of a community of practice group that any member of IMC USA can initiate to increase their knowledge, connections and skills in a particular functional area, geography, demographic or industry. The addition of this group can only enhance our organization as a whole, as recent studies show that women engaged in organizations and in leadership roles materially affect the performance of the organization or business.”
IMC USA Special Interest Groups or Communities of Practice are a benefit of membership in IMC USA. In the past, IMC USA members created communities of practice around technology, consulting specialties, industries and specific methodologies. To join the IMC USA Women’s Group, you must be member of IMC USA. The group meets via the Zoom.us video platform at 5 PM E.T. on the first Thursday of each month. The format of Women Consultants Group meetings includes introductions by each member and a facilitated discussion in which members ask questions or introduce issues related to consulting, running a business or life management and get feedback from their peers.
