Our TEP Talks are the heartbeat of Eleanor. We annually host two TEP Talk programs within the year as a way to highlight and showcase women leaders in our community. These events are part of your membership offering and as a member you attend at no charge!
Past TEP Talks have included:
As the number of members in the Eleanor Project grows through their experience with Dinner and Discussion, we will begin to host larger group events with a special invite to those who become members to join us for a social event, called Oxygen Mask Evenings.
The Eleanor Project encourages social events that work to create time for women to unwind and to take a breath. Oxygen Mask Events were named based on the theory of plane safety. In all flights before takeoff, the flight crew says “in the event of a sudden drop in pressure” an oxygen mask will drop — put on your mask first before assisting others next to you. The thinking here is that you cannot be effective helping others, unless you help yourself. Oxygen Masks events provide opportunities to unwind, relax and rejuvenate.
These are hosted throughout the year in some cases with nominal costs.
Our Dinner & Discussion events connect professional, established women with ambitious and influential young ladies in the community.
The dinners will have specific instructions provided to the dinner hosts delivered in a special Eleanor Project gift box. The box will include dinner invites, instructions, place mats that are scripts for dialog, thank you notes and gift tags for the respective “small gift” that is handed to each guest at the close.
The Eleanor Project wants to recognize, celebrate and do business with WOO establishments. WOO is Women Owned and Operated! The major focus of our effort is to identify businesses that are created and operated by women in our community. We asked our local chambers, business forecasting centers and other local agencies if any list exists that highlights businesses where women are the primary owners and found none. This is our starting point.
For every business, the Eleanor Project identifies as WOO-worthy, we will provide a WOO decal and actively promote that business on our website. A special decal dedication where other Eleanor members join in will be part of that ceremony!
Contact us today to feature your WOO business!
