Recognize Outstanding Women in the Industry—Applications Due Next Month

The ASA Women in Leadership Scholarship Program aims to raise the visibility of women in the staffing industry. Each year, a select number of emerging women leaders are chosen to receive scholarships that cover registration fees for Staffing World®, the ASA annual convention and expo (Oct. 3–5 in Charlotte, NC), as well as the THRIVE: Women in Leadership preconvention program (Oct. 2–3 in Charlotte).

The Women in Leadership Scholarship recipients join a supportive and celebratory community of past winners and other women leaders. You can hear from past winners and ask them about the application process next week during a networking call—it takes place Thursday, May 4, 1–2 p.m. Eastern time.

Scholarship applications are due May 22—get more information and submit your application at americanstaffing.net.
