PENTA commits to lead sponsorship role at the Fourth Annual Nichol’s College Empowering Women in Business Conference
DUDLEY _”Paying it forward,” is a way of life for PENTA Communications Inc.’s Founder and CEO, Deborah Penta. For over 25 years, the CEO of the integrated marketing firm has donated her time, talent, and resources of her company to giving back to numerous organizations in the Central Massachusetts region.
Penta has nurtured, both personally and professionally, women’s leadership development and education endeavors. As part of Penta’s ongoing outreach to inspire and champion women in business, her Agency was the lead sponsor at the 2014 Empowering Women in Business Conference, held on March 27, at Nichols College, in Dudley, Massachusetts.
The Conference was hosted by Nichols College and its Institute for Women’s Leadership; Hometown Bank; and the Center for Women in Enterprise. The keynote speaker was award-winning television journalist, entrepreneur and documentary film producer, Liz Walker. Walker discussed “Seizing the Moment,” in her keynote address, drawing on her experiences as the founder of My Sister’s Keeper, an organization that advocates for women and children in southern Sudan.
Two workshop sessions on the topics of productivity, using social media, learning to navigate, and writing an “elevator speech” were part of the Conference.
“PENTA Communications was proud to join Hometown Bank and the Center for Women and Enterprise in sponsoring the Fourth Annual Nichol’s College Empowering Women in Business Conference,” said Deborah Penta. “We hope this Conference continues to be gloriously successful for the College and that it continues to achieve its goals of inspiring women in all facets of their lives, as they embark on their journeys for success in business and in life.”
Keeping to the theme of women helping women, many participants brought in gently used professional clothes and accessories to benefit the non-profit organization, “Dress for Success,” Worcester. “Dress for Success,” provides professional attire and support to promote the economic and career development of low income women in over 75 cities around the world.
