NKY Chamber Women’s Initiative to host summer Professional Series June 7 at KCPL Erlanger branch

The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) Women’s Initiative will host their annual summer Professional Series event Tuesday, June 7, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at Kenton County Public Library in Erlanger.

Featuring three panelists from diverse business backgrounds, the event, open to both women and men, will focus on how being your authentic self will help drive your professional goals. The event theme, Don’t Just Know Your Value, Live Your Value, will help attendees understand how to advocate for themselves when setting boundaries in the workplace.

The Professional Series will include a panel of three local businesswomen: Sharon Fusco, CEO at Redwood; Mina Jones Jefferson, Chief People Officer at Graydon Law; and Lacy Starling, CEO at LINK Media. Each woman brings to the panel her own experience of facing fears and advocating for herself, and how that led to the discovery of their authentic self.

“Discovering your authentic self is essential in reaching your professional goals,” said Sarah Gray, U.S. Bank Business Banking Sales Manager, and Women’s Initiative Professional Series Committee Chair. “As women in business, we are constantly working to create opportunities for ourselves.
