Introducing Paula Sheppard
Paula has truly made her mark in Newfoundland and Labrador since she took over the helm of NLOWE as executive director in 2011. With her recent appointment as CEO, Paula will continue to be instrumental in leading the efforts to expand this non-profit organization, which offers services to women entrepreneurs to help start and grow their businesses and capitalize on emerging economic opportunities.
NLOWE has a very active membership and is backed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Meet, Mingle, and Learn on October 21
The October 21 luncheon falls on the same day as workshops in our Leadership Development Program. We're offering catchup dates if you missed the opening sessions.
The workshops are designed to provide valuable, practical skills and knowledge to update and enhance your business confidence and competence and make sure you're board (and C-suite) ready.
To register for the workshops scheduled on October 21, and the lunch (our event lunches are included with workshops), please let Susan know.
We attract inspiring guests and members — shown above at the last Making Your Mark Luncheon are (l to r) Corina Walsh, Training Consultant (back to camera), Brenda Kelleher-Flight, GDP Consulting, and Lynn Hammond, Strategic Communications Consultant. Brenda and Lynn are facilitators of the Leadership Development Program.

Note from the President:
“The EXTRAordinary Women is intended to be a catalyst for leadership and my goal is to bring women together with cooperation and collaboration. This boosts women's professional and career opportunities and links into our vibrant community.
“I’m very pleased to say that the new Leadership Development Program eases the path to advance up the management ladder and onto boards. It builds on the openness and sharing of knowledge that has been the hallmark of our events since the first event in January 2011.”
Federal diversity targets open up prospects for growth
With the federal announcement in June that the government would like to see targets of at least 30% of women on boards within five years, opportunities to rise “above the glass ceiling” will be more accessible.

SUPPORT IN THE COMMUNITY
“I recommend the Leadership Development Program for anyone who has leadership ambitions or a goal of becoming a Director on a Board of Directors. The combination of the eight workshops is a strategic step towards that achievement.”
