A workshop to help participants make the best of their new job is scheduled for the March LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV. The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 18, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. The workshop will help participants focus on performance and teamwork to make a success at a new job or get a promotion on an existing job.

Presenter will be Marie Alexander, executive director of the Center for Living & Learning in Van Nuys.

The workshop will help participants work on their performance standards, teamwork and fitting into the culture of their organization. Title for this workshop is “You Got the Job or Promotion – Congratulations! Now What?” Maria and her team will help participants identify ways to keep the job and thrive in the company, be successful in a job or new position, and grow a career.

Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register in advance at 661-288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request.

Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, establish a career path and get a job, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!

Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS AM-1220 is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.

Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
