The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) offers Rising Stars an opportunity to collaborate with Dress for Success (DFS), an HBA alliance partner. The goal of this HBA chapter-level community project is to engage, interact and network with other Rising Stars while giving back to their community and creating a legacy they can call their own.
To learn more about this wildly successful pilot we invite you to read the news article about the project and the booth at the 2011 Leadership conference.
There are a number of engagement models for these community projects for Rising Star consideration:
- Working with a chapter with an already established relationship. Rising Stars can partner with chapter leadership to expand on support activities underway and those planned for future. Listen to this podcast to hear Carol Wells, 2011 San Francisco Bay Area chapter president speak about her experience.
- Working with a chapter where a new relationship needed. Rising Stars can take the lead to form a relationship and define/execute activities in collaboration with DFS. Listen to this podcast to hear Sharlene Cirillo from the HBA Greater Philadelphia chapter speak about her experience.
2012 Rising Stars from the Metro chapter area (NY, NJ) are called to get involved with the local Dress for Success chapter.
HBA chapters have supported Dress for Success at chapter events. Read more:
