Women helping women was the focus of an event held in Springfield earlier Saturday.
The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts held its 3rd annual Mentors Match downtown at One Financial Plaza.
The event is designed to connect members of the Women’s Fund with women in the community who are stepping into leadership roles, by offering insight, resources and career experience.
CEO Donna Haghighat told 22News, the event showcases various career fields for women. “We have different sectors, we have corporate, legal government, non-profit, education and health care represented here today.”
Haghighat added, “Women have volunteered their time to come today and share their career journeys with the women in this program.”
The Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts will be holding another similar event on Tuesday, January 15th.
