Speaker: Angela Sauvage, future-focused marketer, International women’s network lead Description: Many leading companies utilize competency models in defining roles, and measure performance within organizations. Critical competencies such as conflict management, emotional intelligence, and dealing with ambiguity are extremely challenging for young professionals. Angela has observed this firsthand through her leadership in various international mentor programs, and she will share her insights on the essential core competencies companies are in search of and discuss with parents and young adults how to build these competencies early on. When: Aug 22, 2020, 10:00 AM Eastern Time ( US and Canada) Register in advance for this meeting:https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUqcO-ppjotHtGi3z9W6YjvpRkwIsGOgQX-

While the group has accomplished a lot, the work is still ongoing. Now, they have partnered with the Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) for a new campaign. After completing their first round of fundraising in Lexington, a CAAL member found the group’s information online and suggested a partnership, Shingavi said.
Now, CAAL has pledged to match all donations, up to $500, for a second round of baskets to the Lexington Food Pantry. There is no hard deadline for this, but the students are trying to raise money as quickly as possible, as hundreds of people are still unemployed and struggling with food insecurity, Shirude said.
