April 2017 Newsletter

This is a great time of year! The weather is beautiful and so many of you are out and about hiking picnics, soccer games and just enjoying the beautiful state of Arizona. We all feel a little bad for the people living in snow, rain and cold....just like they will feel bad for us in August!!

There are some great things happening in our chapters and our hard work is paying off in chapter growth, new members and events coming up. 
Please enjoy this Spring Newsletter!!

Helping other women get the skills they need to get where THEY want to go

At Doyenne Leadership, I now work with talented women on the rise to develop their leadership and communication skills so that they get where THEY want to go – whether it’s running a team that gets things done, assuming a higher-level position, or shifting their corporate culture. Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my career, it’s that if you want to win the game, you need the right skills to do it.

Dr. Nadia Brown is the President and Founder of Doyenne Leadership Institute, a leadership development firm that focuses on helping women communicate more powerfully, rise up and lead.

Dr. Nadia holds a Doctor of Management degree in Organizational Leadership where she studied the leadership backgrounds and experiences of women in higher education. Dr. Nadia also holds an MBA and a BS in Computer Engineering. Her background includes leading teams, managing projects and facilitating workshops in the IT, nonprofit, financial services, and government industries.

Dr Brown is leader of the Chandler Chapter

Looking for Chapter Leaders!!

GPS is currently looking for Chapter leaders at several existing chapters and to open new chapters in areas not currently served. Chapter leadership is not an easy job, and often our leaders are ready to cycle out and move on to other things. We thank them for their service and dedication, and are looking for new leadership to take over those chapters for the members. Please contact Debbie if you would like to be considered 623~764~1627
