WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Basketball Coach Natasha Adair was one of the featured speakers at the 10th Annual Success Summit hosted by Dress for Success Worldwide this past weekend at the Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, Va. Adair spoke on the theme of the conference, "I Am ..." representing the power that each woman has within herself to fulfill her own professional and personal destiny.
"I would like to thank the Dress for Success organization for allowing me to share my story with so many amazing professional women," said Adair. "This was a great opportunity to network with people in the community and across the country. I was honored to be a part of such a first-class event."
Success Summit is a conference for members of the Professional Women's Group (PWG), an international networking association for Dress for Success clients that provides support, practical information and inspiration, all tailored to the unique needs of those women who have recently entered the workforce, as well as the Professional Women's Group program leaders.
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
Adair focused her speech on leadership and how to find the leader from within. She used her experience in coaching as well as her experience in her personal life and as a woman in the workforce to stress the importance of becoming a leader and how it empowers women to succeed.
In addition to guest speakers, the weekend was packed with workshops for the women to gain real-life knowledge that they can apply to their own lives and communities.
Interactive sessions provided opportunities for delegates to create action plans to pursue their professional passions and increase their economic awareness. The curriculum analyzed their current employment choices, assessed whether they are living their passion through their chosen field, identified what steps they can take while remaining employed to position themselves to work within their passion in the near future and created an action plan to take the appropriate steps to achieve their employment goals and advance in their careers.
