C4W Member Profile: Pat Eardley

What is your profession? Human Resources Consultant for Small Businesses

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? I love shopping with friends and volunteering in my community and church.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? I have only been a member for a short time but I have been attending events and volunteering for about a year. I had a moment of truth with myself and I came to realize that I love C4W and there is no good reason not to be “all in”.

What inspired you to become a member? I love the diversity in both the membership and the programs offered. It really is an organization for ALL women.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? I have learned so much. We’ve all heard the statement “You don’t know what you don’t know” well that also holds true in learning. At the Center there have been informative seminars, speakers and classes on topics that I can’t say that I would have sought out on my own. The exposure has been excellent.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? Well, being in my 30s and having been surrounded by female leaders from early adulthood until now has helped me to be comfortable, strong and empowered in my own skin.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy?It’s more like messages or words to live by. Never give up on your dreams, NEVER. If friends and family don’t dream with you, respectfully dump em’. You’ve got one life to live…..live it! Do your best, and you’ll never let yourself down.
