Young Professional Women’s Association Announces Kick-Off Event

Wednesday, August 14, 2013


Worcester's Young Professional Women's Association will be hosting another great event on August 14th.

Worcester’s Young Professional Women’s Association (YPWA) recently announced their 2013-2014 Kick Off Event, to be held on August 14th amidst some of the city’s largest expansion projects, for an exclusive tour of the progress and future of Worcester’s downtown landscape.

Lead by Consigli Construction, the tour will feature a look back at the construction of Unum’s new offices and a peek at a time lapsed video of building captured from a rooftop camera. The tour will also include an impressive view overlooking another Consigli Construction project across the street at Worcester’s DCU Center expansion.

Full circle

The YPWA launched in 2011. Its original Kick Off two years ago focused on the inception and vision of the CitySquare Project. YPWA Vice President Heather Arndt says, “The significance of our annual kickoff event is always centered on the success of local economic development projects happening within the city. What better example of this success than to have the opportunity to see the Unum building in City Square come full circle. We think it is a great way to jump start our membership for the year and are excited to have the opportunity as an organization to see these projects up close.”

Building relationships

The YPWA’s mission is to engage and empower young professional women through educational and social endeavors. The organization’s membership is comprised of women from the Central Massachusetts region, representing diverse industries and professional levels, gathering monthly at various locations throughout the city to network, ever-important in today's marketplace.

“It’s important for young women to take just about any opportunity to network," says Megahnn Kinnard, PR Chair and Marketing Director for EVO Dining and Living Earth. "The YPWA creates a calendar that includes more than social events, but rather aims to educate and advance women.”

The organization also finds it crucial to work with other organizations in Worcester to foster a sense of community. “We have always included a focus on community relations and volunteerism that really enhances our connection to the city. Our involvement with organizations like Dreams and Wishes and Dress For Success allow YPWA members an opportunity to give back on a physical level and to raise awareness for causes that align with our mission to educate and empower."
