Spring Conference Updates

Join us on Friday, April 8, 2016 for the Annual Spring Conference at the Devens Commons in Devens, MA!

Our April keynote conference speaker, Erin Dullea, will be talking about “Being Brave” and how our power lies in our courage. She will speak on how to take creative charge of our lives and in the connection we dare to forge with ourselves, with others and with the world at large. Click here to learn more about Erin and the 52 Dare Challenge! In addition to our keynote, we will also have breakout sessions with Dr. Nancy Zare of Rapport Builderz International and Nancy Hunter Denney, nationally recognized Leadership Trainer and Educator.


 

Here is a brief description of the breakout sessions:

Believe Me, It’s You: Navigating Difficult Relationships

Presented by Nancy Hunter Denney, nationally recognized Leadership Trainer and Educator

“When you get frustrated by others, work with challenging personalities and find yourself struggling to have quality relationships, ask yourself: What’s the one consistent thing in all three scenarios?  YOU!  That’s right, in this engaging and direct conversation, the presenter offers three helpful strategies for controlling what you can, letting go of what you can’t and communicating for better collaboration.  There’s no avoiding stormy seas.  You can however, chart a better course!

You’ve Got Style!

Presented by Dr. Nancy Zare of Rapport Builderz International

Does that professor rub you the wrong way?  Is that administrator difficult to work with? Have you found that certain students try your patience?  Not surprisingly, you’ve figured out that people have different styles, which result in different ways of communicating.  Learn how to raise your AlikeAbility to create effective working relationships regardless of style.

Being Your Own Super-hero

Presented by Erin Dullea

The foundation of any superhero story is courage – the courage to look fear in the eye, to overcome adversity, to use her innate super-powers to better the (and her) world. Together, we will explore what gives you power, the mission that awaits you, and what it means to be unstoppable.


We will be collecting donations for Abby’s House in Worcester, MA

Abby’s House has been effectively responding to one of the most basic and fundamental human needs – a safe place to stay – since 1976 with a mission of providing shelter and affordable housing, as well as advocacy and support services, to homeless, battered and low-income women, with or without children. Faced with a lack of safe, affordable housing options, domestic violence, an emotional or mental crisis, or underemployment, dreams of a better life are put on hold for these families, and without places like Abby’s House, there would be no options and no hope.

With 78 units of affordable housing and nine shelter beds, we have helped more than 12,000 people on their paths to independence. We provide a welcoming and respectful environment and our individualized work with each family helps them develop a network of services to prevent future homelessness. We open the door one knock at a time, providing safety, compassion and hope for a bright future with help from people like you.

Items they are in need of:

  • twin sheets
  • twin vinyl zippered mattress covers
  • quilted mattress covers
  • pillows
  • towels

Message from the President

Message from the President

MWPHE’s theme for 2016 continues with “Be a Better You!” That is something I strive for everyday, not only in my professional life, but in my personal life as well. I am a wife, mother, grandmother (can’t believe I am that old!), friend, confidant, advisor, and mentor. The list could go on and on as I am sure each and every one of us has one of those lists. As women, our roles are as varied as we are, but one thing we all have in common is our desire to inspire, support and encourage one another.

This year promises to be a year of continued growth for our organization with more opportunities for each of you to become involved on your individual campuses.

So follow us on all social media to stay connected! And remember – “We are all MWPHE!”
