NWCT's February Event: Resilience in a Risky World

Join us on Tuesday, February 17, in Radnor as Tracey Forbes, VP Business Development, SunGard Availability Services, speaks about organizational risks. Today’s world presents new risks to your organization at almost every turn in the road. IT departments need to be always on and always available to meet today’s fast-paced business needs. A “crisis event” can be a power outage or a super storm... it can be expected, such as a marathon, or unexpected, such as a cyber-attack. In every case, your organization needs to respond quickly, proactively and effectively to keep systems running and people in touch. Learn how a Business Continuity program, driven by the sound principles of situational awareness, impact analysis, decision making and effective communications, can help accomplish this.

NWCT’s Mentoring Program is on its way!

On Thursday, November 20, NWCT held the NWCT Mentoring Program Kick off meeting. We are fortunate to have Yvonne Cook, Louise O'Donnell, and Eloise Young as our mentors this year. These women are respected IT leaders that are committed to sharing their knowledge and experiences through mentoring. Yvonne, Louise, and Eloise are mentoring the 9 mentees selected from the 22 NWCT and Girls Develop It (GDI) mentee applications we received. Each mentor will meet as a group with their 3 mentees over the next few months. In addition to a very positive kick off meeting, we had several of the GDI women signed up to become NWCT members!

We still have more work to do and the NWCT’s Mentoring Committee will be here to support all the mentors and mentees during the remainder of the program but I would be remiss if I did not thank Paula D’Imperio, Marissa Phleps, Amy Maleick and Liz Smith of the Mentoring Committee for their time, dedication and effort that they have put into the program and making the kick off meeting a success. Additional thanks to Experis IT for hosting and providing refreshments for the meeting.

Thank you to all mentors and mentees for attending the kick off meeting and to making this a great start to this year’s program!

Warm Regards,

Suzanne Tavares

Chair, NWCT Mentoring Committee
