Center for Executive Women: The CEW Review
    Center for Executive Women Home   Kellogg Home
The CEW Review, June 2009


In each newsletter we will pose a new discussion topic.  Please participate in the discussion through the CEW LinkedIn group.

The first topic is related to our upcoming Women's Impact Series:
Some believe that women have shared a disproportionate amount of the burden during the current financial crisis. Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not? The Article of Interest by Anita Raghavan expresses one point of view on this subject.

Dear Friends of the CEW,

Communication is essential to any great undertaking, and since the inception of the Center for Executive Women, this truth has been proven again and again. As we have worked to help more high-level executive women reach the very top levels of corporate America, so many of our ideas and initiatives have sprung from interactions with our circle of supporters— our Steering Committee members, the alumnae of our executive education programs, the companies we have worked with to identify potential board candidates, and other business people from across the nation who share our vision of a transformed corporate landscape. Our connection to all of you is incredibly valuable, and we want to encourage the continued exchange of ideas.

To help further this dialogue, we are instituting an electronic newsletter focusing on the CEW’s latest news, research and educational opportunities. We hope that you find this first issue of the newsletter interesting and that you share our excitement about upcoming events like the Women’s Senior Leadership Program. Future editions of the newsletter will arrive in your email box every few months and will keep you updated about ways you can stay involved with the CEW. We also urge you to share this newsletter with executive women who might want to know more about our mission and goals. As always, we welcome your questions and comments about our plans and progress.

Over the last few years, social networking has revolutionized the way we communicate, network and share information with one another. We have set up a Center for Executive Women group on LinkedIn to expand our network of members and to enable existing members to network with each other outside of the CEW events.
