ERG Roundtable - 2:30 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
On Wednesday, June 14th, New York Life Insurance Company is hosting an ERG Roundtable at their Manhattan headquarters. Among the topics, we'll discuss:
- Re-energizing ERG members and focusing ERG goals to include Supplier Diversity, LGBT business community sourcing, and strategic partnerships
- Enhancing supply chain diversity across sectors: access to high-quality goods and services generated by diverse business owners
- Expanding the role ERG?s play in the community through advocacy work and civic involvement, specifically in LGBT business & social causes
Please feel free to stay after the ERG Roundtable and attend the Certified Superstar. See details of this event below. All nglccNY members are invited to attend.
Certified Superstar: Time: 4:00 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
Certified Superstar is designed as a 20 minute mentorship program where you have the opportunity to appear before a panel of several professionals from one of our Corporate Partners (in this case, New York Life and other Corporate Partners) to provide a ?mock? pitch. You will give a ten minute presentation which should focus on a service and value proposition. Following your presentation, you will receive ten minutes of constructive feedback on style, content, presentation skills and communication. Although you will not be bidding on any specific job, you should treat this opportunity as if it were an actual sales pitch. The goal of the program is for you to walk away with helpful advice from Corporate Partner representatives and for you to gain additional experience in pitching your businesses. Although this is a mock pitch, it is a tremendous opportunity to get valuable face time with key individuals from New York Life.
