A Day in Her Shoes

Is an interactive, engaging, regional, recruiting event benefitting Oak Grove Center. Bringing talented women of the greater Southern California area together in a day-long immersive event that exposes them to employment and career opportunities they may have never considered.Science, engineering, hospitality, medical, culinary, agriculture, viniculture, public service, first responders, elected officials – all these careers provide different shoes and paths to success. Figuring out which shoe fits and knowing where it will take you can be challenging, especially to young women. Bringing our region’s female talent together with our employers is a winning formula. Proceeds will provide Oak Grove Center funding for education and career-related programs.

Why an Event?

“A Day in Her Shoes” begins with an immersive event; however, there is so much more. Once the participants experience the event, they will be paired with experienced mentors. Seasoned women from all career facets will volunteer to be a coach, champion, and support to attendees exploring newly discovered career opportunities. Accountability pledges and testimonials will be collected over the year, and prior to the next event, showcased. Securing well-paying, local, employment opportunities is critical to our region’s success, especially as we continue to grow. Harvesting the experience and expertise from our senior women leaders, provides support, confidence, and real-life success examples. Together, the event and on-going mentorship program, “A Day in Her Shoes” forges a successful career path, locally.
