Morris Women
More...

Morris Women doesn’t actually exist yet except as an idea and a proposed project.  When I took the Entrepreneur Incubator class through the I-Center, I came up with the idea about starting a club called the Morris Women in Business and has morphed into Morris Women.  This idea stemmed from recent studies regarding women’s lack of advancement in upper management positions and personal interest in such an organization at RMU.

Today women make up 46% of the workforce and of that 46% only 15% of women hold CEO or board positions.  Of the total population in the USA, only 15% of women hold CEO or board positions? Those numbers are disheartening to read.  Some of the reasons for this lack of women in upper management positions are partially due to lack of mentoring opportunities for women and also women’s lack in the art of negotiating for themselves.

Therefore, Morris Women would allow women to build strong foundations early in their careers through mentoring and learning lessons from other successful women. RMU possesses a diverse population of women, women who could share their stories about juggling, life, marriage, children, school, and careers with each other.  Morris women would be a student run organization that would host forums, workshops, networking events for other women to connect.  All women at RMU would be able to participate, including Alumni. 

If you are passionate like I am about being in an organization like RMU please contact me.  I am looking for students who would like to hold officer positions to make this an official student organization.  Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary Positions are available.  In order, to hold a position, you need to be a full-time student with good academic standing.  If you would like to be a member, are interested in learning more about this organization, or like to help create this organization you can contact me below.  Rodrn222@robertmorris.edu

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her. A woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. No matter how many rocks she has stumbled upon her FAITH AND STRENGTH remains intact.

Year 2012

So the holidays are officially over with the ringing of the New Year! This New Year’s Eve, I had dinner with a friend downtown.  I dressed up for the occasion and even had my hair styled for the night. I felt like a princess all dressed up. My dress and jewelry resembled the old Hollywood fashion, classy and elegant. The rest of the Downtown Chicago crowd also dressed to impress. The women had pretty dresses with their high high heels. The men were equally dressed up in their shirts and ties. The atmosphere was fun and people were happy to be out.

With the start of the New Year, come the infamous New Year’s resolutions. My resolutions are simple. I resolute not to make resolutions that do not last more than two weeks. Instead, I will try to be a more conscientious student and try to avoid last minute homework assignments. I will also try to help out more with my community and to focus on others around me. These are not the only resolutions I have but they are a start. There are a lot of other things which I would like to accomplish this year, and I am looking forward to working on them.

What resolutions, if any, did you plan for the year? You can e-mail me a response at rodrn222@robertmorris.edu or twitter at blackhawksgirl0.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and I look forward to hearing from you.

Winter is Here!

Week one of the winter quarter is here along with cold weather in Chicago. There is about two week left before Christmas. So time to cash in on some of the last minute deals! I am almost done with my shopping, but have a few more items to purchase.

Christmas in Chicago is my favorite time of year. The city is lit with holiday decorations making the city sparkle and shine. Walking down Michigan Ave during this time, you can feel the buzz of the holiday spirit emanating through the streets and passer byes.

I am looking forward to the professional development week at RMU which is being held for from December 13-15. There are going to be several interesting speakers that I am looking forward to listening to.

Other than that I am still working on organizing Morris Women and am looking for members who are interested in joining. Morris Women is geared towards providing women with tools and knowledge needed to succeed in the business and in their careers; through mentoring, volunteering, and networking opportunities. If you would like more information and become a member please contact me at rodrn222@robertmorris.edu.

Until then, I am wishing everyone and their families a safe and Happy Holiday and Happy New Year!
