(VIRTUAL) Career Transition Connect Group | Members Only
July 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 8, 2021 @ 5:30 pm CDT - Free
At TeamWomen, we believe in the power of meaningful connections to empower women to rise together. That’s why, this summer, we are launching Connect Groups! This is a FREE member-led initiative for TeamWomen members with common goals and interests to gather. While these cohorts are free, we encourage a donation to support our mission work. All donations can be made here.
Stacey Jensen and Jennifer O’Connor know firsthand about the highs and lows of career advancement. These two powerhouses are eager to create a space for women going through a career transition to come together in community. Content will be shaped by the participants’ interests but will cover networking, building your personal brand, and so much more.
The groups will meet monthly for four subsequent months. Our hope for these groups is to cultivate a strong sense of community within TeamWomen through deeper connections, shared interests, and support of one another’s goals. The groups are limited to 10 committed participants to ensure a tight-knit community.
Meeting Dates (First Wednesday of the month)
- July 7 | 12:00-1:00 PM
- August 4 | 12:00-1:00 PM

The final session will be a large group get-together with the other cohort and a way to celebrate wins and new connections. It will take place at the TeamWomen Office in the West End. The address is 1633 West End Blvd, Minneapolis, MN 55416.
