(Re)Build Your Confidence
with Simple Steps in 2019
Dear Simple Steps Colleagues and Friends,Happy New Year to one and all!
2019 is in full swing and many of you might have already kick-started your new year’s resolutions. It is always encouraging to be connected with people taking small steps towards preparing for future opportunities whether or not you are currently looking to return to the workforce. Women on break often lose confidence as a result of many reasons, including outdated skills, detachment from their industry, and anxiety about the future.
Simple Steps has been developing projects that help our members build real-world experiences and professional networks. Our proud corporate partners have also been working together to train and recruit skilled and experienced female talent.
We will continue to build an amazing community and launch exciting opportunities in 2019. Discover and develop your dormant talents with Simple Steps!
