Dallas, TX, June 27, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- With today’s increasingly competitive job market, it’s more important than ever to have the career skills and marketability to be the best choice for prospective employers. Studies reveal that women of color are faced with unique challenges in competing for leadership positions, often using different strategies than their counterparts. Fortunately, there is an event for professional women of color who are looking to advance in the workplace: Tanya Smith of Be Promotable is hosting a virtual conference called the Women of Color Career Success Telesummit to help professional women learn and project the right career management skills that get them hired and/or promoted.
Mrs. Smith says, “Women of color are one of the fastest growing demographics in the workforce but if less than 2% of us are in leadership positions, something has to be missing.” Because she believes that having the right career skills is key to helping women land advanced career opportunities, Mrs. Smith has invited top career and business experts from all over the United States to present career strategies and skills in a virtual telesummit, August 30 through September 2, 2010.
The Women of Color Career Success Telesummit was created to help guide working women of color through the process of discovering simple strategies to enhance their career skills – and optimize their hiring potential. The speaker line-up includes an impressive list of successful authors, coaches, and entrepreneurs such as Cheryl Broussard – bestselling author of Sister CEO: What’s Money Got To Do With It, Milana Leshinsky – bestselling author and passive income strategist, Deborah Hardnett – Professional Black Women’s Network, Wilka Toppins – The Corporate Latina, and more.
This virtual event will take place over telephone bridge line and internet beginning August 30 and ending September 2. All participants will receive a “virtual gift bag” of free products and services along with an all access pass to a “virtual tradeshow”. There are three options available to participate, including the option to receive a beautifully packaged CD set of recordings from the event.
