Time & Location
About the event
Building an Economy that Lifts All Boats
Join us as Director of the City of Duluth’s Workforce Development Department, Elena Foshay, shares ways we can work together to build an economy that lifts all boats, with 'triple bottom line' outcomes - equity, environment, and economic prosperity. Elena will talk about the workforce development strategies to achieve this goal and how it will specifically benefit women in our community. She will also share some specific actions we need to take to re-engage women who left the labor force during the pandemic.

A FEW UPDATES...
COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS: Our new venue, Country Inn and Suites, has a large conference room that will allow plenty of space for social distancing. Masks are recommended, but not required.
MEAL SERVICE: We will no longer be offering a buffet-style lunch during our meetings. Our new venue allows us to bring in outside food, so we have new options for you! Ticket Options:
1. Meeting Only (no meal provided) - $10. Coffee and water will be available. If desired, you may bring your own food and beverage, such as a bagged lunch or take-out meal. 2. Pre-order a Boxed Meal from The Boat Club - $25 (includes meal and meeting). The boxed meals will contain a sandwich or wrap, fruit, side, and dessert. Meals must be pre-ordered and pre-paid by the preceding Wednesday and will be available for pick-up at the beginning of the meeting.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: To streamline the announcements time we are trying a new system this year. There will be "Announcement" forms on the tables that you can fill out and give to your table host. After the speaker is done, there will be time for table hosts to share all announcements with the group. After the meeting, a photo of your announcement will be posted on our EWN Facebook page at facebook.com/ewnduluth.
MEMBERSHIP: We are updating our membership terms to make it easier for all to track and maintain. Instead of annual memberships that renew on January 1 each year, you may now purchase a one-year ($40) or recurring membership ($35/year) on any date, and it will be good for one year from that date. The recurring membership will automatically renew each year using your entered payment method until you cancel. Cancel at any time! We will have a "First Choice" prize drawing for all of the people that signed up for membership in the month prior to each meeting. Visit our website to learn more: ewnnorthland.com/membership.
