On Wednesday, March 25, I was invited by a fellow PR friend to attend Truscott Rossman's Wonderful Women Wednesday event. Women from the public relations, journalism, and communications professions gathered in the atrium behind Tre Cugini to meet, mingle and drink with other female professionals in the community.
I met a handful of wonderful women, each inspiring me to continue to work hard for the career goals I've set for myself. The women in the PR, journalism, and communication sectors of the greater Grand Rapids community as a powerful breed, leaving feelings of regret and remorse at the doorstep of self-doubt. Sharing a space with them for an evening not only inspired me to press on, but left me feeling reassured and confident in my bold character.
I look forward to attending more networking events with Truscott Rossman in the future and becoming more better acquainted with the lively, professional female community in Grand Rapids. Because after all, it's (still) a man's world out there and women have to stick together.
