Tamara Lashchyk, Wall Street executive, career and leadership coach, business consultant and author of “Lose the Gum: A Survival Guide for Women on Wall Street, Main Street and Every Street in Between,” was the guest speaker at the recently concluded Businesswomen of New York Networking Group (BNYNG).
Attended by almost 40 women representing multinational and SME firms, the event aimed for each attendee to share career challenges and victories, and learn from each other’s experiences. The event was well received with attendees commenting that, “I just loved the energy in the room last night, united we stand, and in pack we feel stronger. I can walk away knowing that we are there to support each other and that thought is comforting,” and, “I enjoyed all the great advice, conversations and connections made at the event.” Another attendee said, “As the minority in certain fields, we face similar problems. The members of BNYNG understands my concerns without having to explain my situation too much.”

BNYNG is open to all professional women from various organizations across the New York area. When asked about where she thinks this group is heading, Tamara Lashchyk said, “the idea of the overall event is fantastic, and I thought the quality of women that attend was a good mix of seniority levels. This could really morph into something big.”
The next gathering is planned for October 2019
