President’s Message – October 2022

Out of the pandemic and into the hybrid-work fire.

If you have been feeling like your hair is on fire these past months, you have company. According to Gallup, stress in the workforce has never been higher.[1] Separately, a Harvard Business Review author observed that women leaders working in hybrid situations may be more challenged to find sponsors and mentors, less likely to be seen as seriously committed to their work, and more challenged to “speak up in virtual meetings.”[2] The context for women’s empowerment and careers would appear to be fraught.

Succeeding in the face of adversity is a hallmark leadership quality of our members. For over 45 years, The Boston Club has been a magnet for amazing women who have achieved their dreams and inspired others along the way. Our offerings are the antidote to today’s volatile and uncertain world. Here you will find support, connection, conversation, and opportunity.

At The Boston Club, our mission and vision matter more than ever. I am honored to serve as your President. My door is always open.
