What’s next for women in the midstate? CPBJ roundtables

Let’s talk roundtables. Women roundtables. Lots of them.

Women in Leadership is going to step things up in 2017. Central Penn Business Journal plans to host a series of roundtables this year. Included in that series will be women-issue discussions.

So, here’s my question: What women issues would you like to see discussed?

I’ve already reached out to some of my mentors in the midstate, and they have shared some good, critical ideas that will work well in thought leadership discussions, but I wanted to expand the suggestions to the overall Women in Leadership (WIL) readership.

What do WIL readers want to learn more about? What kind of real-world advice would be helpful?

Shoot me an email and let’s put your idea into the mix. Our first roundtable will launch this spring.

In this issue:

When I first started working here last spring, I was told by multiple people to check out Macris Chocolates in Lemoyne. We did just that. Web editor Nicole Chynoweth interviewed owner Elena Macris about owning a small business. Macris headlines our newsletter this month.

Reporter Jennifer Wentz interviewed an online matchmaker who recently came back to the midstate after spending time in the Los Angeles area.

Amy Chamberlin talked to reporter David O’Connor about leading Creative York, a nonprofit that seeks to make the arts and creativity accessible to everyone.

Reporter Jason Scott interviewed Amma Johnson on her online partnership with Zulily. Johnson is a Harrisburg fashion designer.

I sat down with Donna Newell of NTM Engineering. She and her three partners have seen some impressive growth in her company since its launch in 2006.
