On Tuesday, March 12, an extremely meaningful Career Readiness Workshop, sponsored by Project Lead, took place at Simcha Palace in Kew Gardens Hills. Over 100 participants attended the extremely informative and engaging event. The presenters included Dr. Inessa Kandov, DDS, a Board-Certified specialist in orthodontics and dental facial orthopedics; Rebbetzin Ora Nisanov, Director of Medical Records and Health Information Manager at Union Plaza Care Center in Flushing;

Miriam Friedman, Director, NYC FACTS Educational Solutions; Irina Yadgarova, an accomplished attorney focusing on trusts and estates, probates, and administration and elder law; and Channah Ginsburg, MSW, community outreach and clinician at Met Council's Family Violence Services program. All of the talented and inspiring presenters discussed their careers, their education, and the balance between family and career. The group then broke into five different workshop groups, which were extremely well-received. In addition, Sara Castelli brought greetings from Councilwoman Lynn Schulman.

Kudos to Councilwoman Lynn Schulman, NYC City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams, and DYCD for funding the program. Special thanks to the professional leadership of Hadar Bet Yaakov High School and YSZ Girls' High School for helping us arrange the event.
