Second “Ignite” Workshop Draws Immigrant Women
to Learn, Lunch, and Link
It was learning, lunch, and linking up with other like-minded women at TWI’s March Ignite Workshop in southern California.
The topic of the learning was “The Perfect Pitch: Presenting Yourself Socially and Professionally in the Very Best Light.” Immigrant women professionals spent the day creating and practicing the pitches they will use to represent themselves and their goals to others.
Lunch was a delicious organic, low-carb meal catered by Chef Ilkay Basugur, a Turkish immigrant and co-founder of Fermentality, LLC.
Linking up with others of similar backgrounds rounded out the five-hour event attended by women from seven different countries from all over the LA area and as far away as San Francisco and China.
The March workshop was second in TWI’s Ignite series, in which women professionals gather at the Unitá Club workspace in El Segundo to network and gain knowledge and skills in navigating the challenges of living and working in the U.S.
Ignite workshops target immigrant professional women from any counry. Future workshops will focus on topics such as: “Self-reflection: Finding Who I Am and My Path for the Future,” “Networking Strategies and Best Practices ,“ and “The How-tos of Starting a Successful Small Business.”
