Women Executives Arrive in NE Ohio

by | Jul 8, 2015 | Networking & Connections

Once a year, Executive Arrangements hosts a gathering that is formally known as EA Introduces, but that we lovingly call Girl Power! The guest list includes all of the female executives we helped relocate to Cleveland, Akron or Canton during the past year for a senior level position. Goal of this night is to have them all meet each other (so they have a peer group in their new town) as well as locals who were part of the welcoming committee at a cocktail party held at our President’s home in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. This year’s gathering attracted almost 30 women; and something truly magical happens when you cross pollinate newcomers from all over the country, toss in a few bottles of wine, and let them start networking!

Half way through the night, we paused to let each guest introduce herself and share what company/position brought them to NE Ohio, the city they had left behind, and anything they were still looking for that they hadn’t found in their new town yet…then the ideas begin zinging around the room! Locals jumped in to offer ideas to newcomers, everything from where to volunteer to names of hair salons, babysitters, and shoe stores. Several non-profit execs discussed the many opportunities to sit on boards for social and professional networks and to nurture a passion.
