• Women's Guide to Professional Dress for an Interview | Global Image Group

    With the unemployment rate in the United States at an all time high, interviews can be very stressful for many job-seekers so it is imperative that you showcase your unique abilities and demonstrate you are an ideal candidate for the company. In order for you to project the best image during your interview, you must feel good in your clothing, have a positive outlook, and remember that when in doubt, boring is better. The general rules for proper attire to an interview vary by gender, job industry, and season.

    Decent workKey to sustainable development It is estimated that over 600 million new jobs need to be created by 2030, just to keep pace with the growth of the global working age population. That’s around 40 million per year. We also need to improve conditions for the some 780 million women and men who are working but not earning enough to lift themselves and their families out of USD 2 a-day poverty. The importance of decent work in achieving the newly adopted Agenda for sustainable development is highlighted by the Goal 8 which aims to “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”.

Contact: Rev Paul Nicolson taxpayersagainstpovertytap@gmail.com 020 8376 5455 MOTHERS AND OTHER CARERS SAY: We are getting together to help each other and stop the welfare cuts. We are not skivers. Being a mother or caring for a sick, disabled or elderly person is hard and vital work. Our children are everyone's future. How we care for the most vulnerable tells what society we live in. Disabled mums are found 'fit for work' and cut off benefits because we manage to care for our children. Mothers bear the stress and worry. We risk being evicted when we put feeding our children before paying the rent. The cuts hit women most. Domestic violence rises as escape routes are cut. Large families will suffer more from the benefit cap. Thousands of children are being taken into care because their mothers are impoverished. The bedroom tax will divide our families -- we won't be able to keep a room for the children we share with ex-partners, carers and relatives. Wages are too low to pay the rent; even when we earn we need benefits. Young people also suffer -- no jobs, no affordable homes. We are forced into debt. Some of us go into the sex industry to survive. Food banks are humiliating. We are entitled to a living income, not charity. Thousands of families will be shipped out of London. The cuts in our benefit incomes are paying for a tax cut for the wealthiest, tax havens for corporations and the bailout of the banks. We demand: • Affordable housing. Rent controls. No housing benefit cap. No bedroom tax. • A living wage. Mothers and carers are entitled to support. • Adequate benefits linked to the increasing prices of food, fuel, clothes, transport and other necessities. • Full rights & benefits for disabled people. • Don't force people out of London • End the new poll tax. 1000 Mothers initiated by Taxpayers Against Poverty (TAP) and supported by: Barnet Alliance for Public Services, Day-Mer Turkish & Kurdish Community Organisation, UCU at CONEL, Global Women's Strike, Haringey Alliance for Public Services, Haringey Defend Council Housing, Haringey Federation of Residents Associations, Haringey Green Party, Haringey Housing Action Group, Haringey Solidarity Group, Haringey Trades Council, Haringey UNISON, Holy Cross United Reformed Church, London Region National Pensioners Convention, Single Mothers' Self-Defence, Socialist Women's Union, Socialist Workers Party, Somerford Grove Community Centre, St. Paul's C-of-E Tottenham, WinVisible (women with visible and invisible disabilities)

Learn more about WGN and its mission and vision in this conversation with WGN Founder Linda Lattimore. www.wgn-global.com TRANSCRIPTION ------------------------------- Hello, My name is Linda Lattimore and I am the founder of the Women's Global Network, a women's business networking group that I launched in 2006. Throughout my career as both an attorney and the owner of different companies, I have observed and listened to the needs of women in the workforce both in the corporate world and as business owners competing neck to neck with other companies that had more connections or perhaps more funding. So many times, they were just looking for another woman to talk with who had already walked the path and who could just point them in the right direction. They were looking for a "personal" relationship, not just someone who would throw a business card at them and "sell" them. It became abundantly clear to me that women will opt to do business with friends they trust at every opportunity. As interesting and dynamic women began to show up at the meetings genuinely thrilled to find each other and I watched business deals coming together over golf games, wine dinners, spa parties and branding panels, I could see relief in each of them. They had found their "kitchen cabinet", that intimate circle of women that were smart and had business savvy, who were unselfishly interested in helping each other grow their business. If there was a caterer or florist in the group they used her. The same held true for the insurance maven, the webmistress, the Doctor, lawyer or banker, restauranteur, accountant or bookkeeper, massage therapist or technology guru. They were there for each other and they called on each other. Before we knew it, there were branches in other cities and other worthwhile programs were being created. Our Young Professionals Group was started for young women ages 21-30 who were navigating challenging new jobs, or in a number of cases, boldly starting their own businesses. Mentoring programs were created to match up young women with other women in the same industry or field who were just a little farther down the path than they were. This pilot program has been very successful thanks to the hard work of our members. Our hope is to launch it in all of our cities in the coming year and to work with local corporations creating programs that will ensure the success of our young women entering the workforce today. As a mother with two daughters in their twenties, I am especially grateful that WGN recognizes this need. But I have to say that the program that has touched my heart and personally changed my life the most has been our Global Business Partners program. In 2008, we launched this program on International Women's Day. WGN branches and their members adopted and became partners to women in villages in the developing world, raising awareness and encouraging their own communities to share their resources in a way that supports empowerment. Through member donations, WGN members invest in microfinance programs that make small loans to women-owned businesses in underdeveloped countries. In our first year, we assisted women in 5 impoverished villages in Tanzania, Ghana, Honduras, Mexico and Zambia to start their businesses. We know that giving women the control and the responsibility of small loans raises their socio-economic status and that loans to women tend to more often benefit the whole family as they allow mothers to feed, clothe and educate their children. The WGN vision is to continue this journey of establishing a network of sister cities, creating personal connections and effecting positive change. Our members understand that it's not just about a shift of money from those of us who have a little more to those that have less. It's about passing on education and experiences while we receive them and learn as well. The WGN Global Immersion Trips give our members the chance to travel to meet their Global Business Partners and to actively work with them as they grow their businesses. The future is bright for the Women's Global Network as we meet each month to continue to support each other, help our young women on their own exciting journeys and know that we are creating true partnerships where we can celebrate the successes of women all around the world. I hope you will consider becoming active with WGN and joining us on this amazing adventure!
