Apply This Week for an ASA Scholarship for Women Leaders

Two rising women leaders will go to Staffing World® and THRIVE Live—for free—but applications must be received by this Wednesday, May 25.

The ASA Women in Leadership Scholarship Program aims to raise the visibility of women in the staffing industry and award scholarships, to two rising stars who are committed to a career in staffing and have shown career growth potential, that cover registration fees for Staffing World, the ASA annual convention and expo (Oct. 25–27 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas), and the THRIVE: Women in Leadership preconvention program (Oct. 24–25 in Las Vegas).

These scholarships have been made possible by the generous support of Assurance, founding sponsor of the ASA women in leadership interest group. Find out more and submit your application at
