New Leaders Council – Nominations for Institute Fellows Open!

A message from the New Leaders Council – Montana Chapter:

New Leaders Council is now taking nominations for up and coming, millennial leaders to attend our Leadership Institute!

Since 2006, NLC has trained nearly 7,000 leaders who have gone on to start innovative non-profits and businesses, serve in public office, and have an impact in the public policy space.

The NLC Institute is an intensive six-month training program that is provided WITHOUT CHARGE to all selected Fellows.

Through the Institute, our Fellows receive deep lessons in entrepreneurship, finance, communications, political/business/non-profit management, digital organizing, and public policy analysis and process. Our Fellows graduate our institutes empowered with the skills they need to start their own businesses, lead community advocacy programs, start non-for-profits, and engage in the civic process.

We are currently accepting nominations for our 2020 Fellow class. If you know of an up-and coming leader who could benefit from the personal and professional development training that the NLC Institute provides, please nominate them.

Applications are due October 1, 2019.

 Volunteer businesses needed for donation sites for MSU “Executive Closet” summer clothing drive!

BPW is partnering with the Allen Yarnell Center for Student Success at MSU to collect professional clothing for, and provide assistance for, the MSU Executive Closet event. Each year in the fall, MSU hosts this wonderful program to provide students with the opportunity to acquire free professional clothing along with tips for how to pair outfits and dress for success – giving students the resources and tools to dress professionally for career fairs, interviews and their first jobs out of college!  Students are able to select and keep a complete professional outfit from a selection of donated clothing.

Some BPW members businesses helped out last year by hosting a bin at their storefront or office as a donation/clothing drop off location. Other individual BPW members helped set up and facilitate the fall clothing giveaway event. Thanks so much to those who participated last year for your help!

We would like to increase our support this year and are calling for volunteers to help in the following areas:

Be a Clothing Donation Host Site

We are looking for host sites who would be willing to act as a drop-off location for donations:

  • A collection bin and signage will be provided to you. 
  • Donations will be collected from your site on a regular basis as determined by you and the collection team from MSU’s Sigma Nu fraternity (but usually every 2 weeks depending on volume)
  • The Clothing Drive will start in mid-June and run until August 23, 2019

Help Prep and Staff the Executive Closet on September 17

If you are not able to be a host site, but would like to assist in other ways, please consider:

  • Help sort donations 1-2 times this summer (dates and times tbd)
  • Help set up the event on Monday, September 16, 2019 4 p.m. – ???
  • Provide clothing assistance to students the day of the event, Tuesday, September 17, 2019 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Please contact BPW President Melissa Herron at president@bozemanbpw.org if you have questions or would like to sign up to be a clothing donation site and/or help out!

Thank you,

Melissa Herron

 Exploring Paid Family and Medical Leave affects on Adult Health

      An announcement from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research:    
    You’re Invited  

WEBINAR  – Work Supports for Adult Health:
The Role of Paid Family and Medical Leave
 

May 31, 2019 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (PT) / 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm (ET)

Many Americans struggle to balance work and caregiving responsibilities. As the United States population ages — with the U.S. Census Bureau projecting that by 2035 those 65 and older will outnumber the youth for the first time in history – the number of men and women who are providing care for someone age 65 and older will continue to increase. In addition, one in seven people live with an adult with a disability.   This panel will explore the impact that paid leave has on improving adult health outcomes.

This webinar is the third in a series of three webinars produced in partnership with Policies for Action—a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, administered by the Urban Institute—on the impacts of work supports on health outcomes.  

Moderator Dr. Heidi Hartmann, President and CEO, Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Panelists Dr. Kanika Arora, Assistant Professor, Department of Health Management & Policy, University of Iowa
Indivar Dutta-Gupta, Co-Executive Director, Center on Poverty and Inequality & the Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative, Georgetown Law
Lynn Friss Feinberg, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute
Josephine F. Kalipeni, Director of Policy and Federal Affairs, Caring Across Generations
