A few days ago, the Women’s Club of Minneapolis hosted a program on the health of the eggs that typically end up on our breakfast tables. Led by Britta Schnell, assisted by Jessica Stephan the “Good Egg Project: The Incredible Egg” was a discussion on innovations in disease control, diet, research and environment vis-à-vis egg production. The Women’s Club of Minneapolis “embraces a diverse membership that spans generations, backgrounds and interests, creating a stimulating atmosphere for business and social exchange.” Since its launch over a century ago, has been providing both women and men from various backgrounds with a retreat. It also helps other causes, such as six years ago when it donated over $100,000 to local social agencies serving women and children.
Joy Lim Nakrin – a panelist at various workshops the Club holds – has a background in law and is currently an anchor at the FOX Connecticut Morning News in Hartford. In addition, a few months ago on KSTP.com, (where Nakrin is an anchor), she spoke with Jill Johnson on the Minnesota Women Business Owners Hall of Fame. They discussed how important it was to make connections with those who they felt could help them achieve their goals.
