Dignity For Divas - NABA Seattle Volunteer Event

Dignity for divas flyer.jpg

Dignity For Divas.

NABA Seattle will be partnering with Dignity for Divas for a volunteer event April 20th from 11Am-1PM. Dignity for Divas provides essential care packages to women experiencing homelessness which helps them restore their dignity, reminds them that they matter, and reconnects them with their inner diva. This puts them in a better position, both emotionally and mentally, to successfully transition out of homelessness. At our event we will be assembling care packages that will be distributed to homeless women in need. 

Children are allowed to participate but must be accompanied with a parent or guardian. The parent must stay with their children the entire event. The age limit is age 7 years old for bagging events. All parents must also sign a liability waiver for their children and photo release form. We will also need to know of any allergies their child may have.

Elements of Success Program at the University of Washington

Greetings!

 EY will host its annual Elements of Success Program at the University of Washington Foster Business School (Paccar Hall Room 290) on Thursday, September 24th and we are asking for volunteers to network with students, deliver presentations and assist with mock interviews.

 The purpose of the Elements of Success Program is to expose diverse students to a professional services firm like EY and prepare them for career fairs, leadership conferences/interviews and club presentations.

 The half day will consist of presentations discussing the do’s and don’ts of dressing, interviewing, networking, communications styles and resume writing.  Immediately following the presentations, networking receptions and/or real-time feedback will be provided to the student participants.

 The areas where we will really need NABA volunteers is the Resume building workshop/reviews and the Mock Interviews. The more time we can get volunteers to attend the better but we understand you are busy, so we are asking for these as the most important items.

Please sign up to volunteer and indicate your selected event/time preference for participation in the recruiting schedule below via e-mail to Andre Gill-McVey at andre.gillmcvey@ey.com  by September 11.

For any questions regarding this event, please contact Andre Gill-McVey at andre.gillmcvey@ey.com or call (206) 310-2739.
