WESTFIELD, NJ - Thinking of switching careers or returning to the workforce after a long hiatus?  Learn about the challenges and rewards of starting over professionally from a panel of women who have done just that at “Second Acts,” the College Woman’s Club of Westfield’s annual spring luncheon on Wednesday, March 16, at 11:30 a.m. at Echo Lake Country Club, 515 Springfield Ave., Westfield.  Tickets are $60 and all proceeds benefit the club’s scholarship fund.

“Second Acts” features panelists Dr. Mary Fleck, Director of Education, Good Grief, Inc.; Liz Miller, Founder and Principal of Personal Financial Navigation LLC; and Kim Musikant, owner of Active Life Fitness.  Motivated by personal circumstances, all three women began new careers after years working in corporate or education fields or raising young families.  The panel, moderated by Kathleen O’Neill Lynch, will explore the practical and personal factors behind their success, as well as the research and resilience required for starting anew. 

“’Second Acts’ is a topic uniquely suited to our members, who have devoted their considerable talents to the workplace, home, or volunteer efforts and may now be looking for something else,” said Lynn Adams, CWC president.  “We are pleased to offer this opportunity to come learn from these panelists to the wider community, all in support of our efforts to help young women launch their own futures.”

Founded in 1917 to further higher education for women, the College Woman’s Club awards scholarships to young women from Westfield on the basis of academics, leadership and financial need.  The annual spring luncheon is the club’s largest fundraiser, with all proceeds from ticket sales and raffle items benefitting scholarships. For additional information or to register, please contact cwc.westfield@gmail.com or visit the club’s website at www.cwclubwestfield.com.
