Welcome to the WWB Network's Website

The Working Women of Bronxville (WWB)-
Evolving in a time of Economic Crisis

In the past five years the Working Women of Bronxville  (WWB)
Network founded by two local residents, Kim Olson and Lisa
Giuffra Diaz, has served as a community organization for
Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, and Mount Vernon working
women and women seeking to re-enter the workforce.   The
philosophy of the WWB is inclusion, connection and promotion
thereby providing a forum for women to connect and network
with other women in our local community on topics of mutual
interest.

In light of the current economic environment, the WWB intends
to restructure the organization and promote programs for 2009
that will focus on providing topical programs such as retooling
professional skills, career transitioning, effective networking,
managing stress, and embracing change.  


The transition team consisting of WWB members Carolyn
LoGalbo, Araxi Macaulay, Catherine Needham and JoAnn
LoFrisco is seeking new leaders interested in contributing to
the ongoing growth of the network.  WWB Board positions
consist of executive officers (President, Vice President,
Membership, Communications and Events Officers) and council
members.  For more information about WWB membership,
Board and Council positions please contact Catherine
Needham directly at workingwomenofbronxville@gmail.com

For more information see Upcoming Events.
 


The purpose of the Working Women of Bronxville (“WWB”)
Network is to provide an organized forum for working women and
women seeking to re-enter or stay in touch with the workforce to
meet, connect and network with other women in our local
community on topics of mutual interest.

The group was started in September 2003.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The face of our organization is going to get a makeover in 2009.



Our network continues to be a diverse group of women from
Bronxville, Eastchester, Tuckahoe, Mount Vernon and other
communities in the greater Bronxville area.  We span a spectrum of
ages, career types, and choices about work - - some choosing full-
time careers, some part-time or flex arrangements, some seeking
to re-enter the workforce, some starting their own businesses,
some retired and some choosing to make their work raising their
families and volunteering in the community.



The WWB will continue to provide a platform for the debate and
discussion of social and professional issues of interest to our
members.  Taking heed of the current economic environment,
however, the WWB will design a program for 2009 that will focus
on providing topical programs such as retooling professional
skills, career transitioning, effective networking, managing stress,
and embracing change.



What will change in 2009, however, are the structure of the
organization and the composition of the senior leadership team.  
The WWB's original founders- Kim Olson and Lisa Diaz- have
decided to pass the management mantle to a new team of leaders.  
WWB thanks Lisa and Kim for their outstanding contributions in
providing this invaluable forum that has so positively touched the
lives of so many women in our area and enabled us to learn, make
new friends and gain insight into multiple areas of mutual concern.



WE NEED YOU!



The WWB is looking for new leaders interested in contributing to
the ongoing evolution of the WWB.  There are a variety of Board
