Good afternoon, Ladies! I surely appreciate all of those that we're able to attend this event that was given by the PC BFS Commission. I would like to ask if any of you have concerns regarding events that we (staff) are helping to empower other women, please feel free to contact me Rosa Grayden @ 864 656 3239 or email-

Yes, sometimes during the year or when time allows we will do our best to have an event that will be solely for males, if I may answer this questions.

I will not debate about needs here at CU staff. I am almost 30 years in and see, hear and feel the need to help empower those that need whatever we can give. Again, if you have any concerns, feel free to drop by my office or however you choose to contact me. Thanks

Sheila Williams, my goal was not to discourage women from attending the seminar, it was simply to voice my opinion that I find it offensive.

I am sorry that you had to go thru trial and error to gain respect in your position, as for me, I have NEVER been dis respected in my current or former positions. Maybe this seminar will help you and other women like you.

I say again, I find this seminar offensive. I gave 20 years of my life in an entirely male dominated society to ensue I that I would always have the right to voice my opinion in written form or at the top of my lungs where ever I choose.

I am speaking on behalf of me and other women like me. Sheila, you have no idea nor will you ever know what is to be me.

Lori Brierre I don't see anything in the seminar description that says were are going to have to be lambs and serve coffee. If you don't like the seminar description, you do not have to attend. Don't spoil it for me and others that do want to attend. i do hope to learn something that will help me in my work relationship with my fellow employees and supervisors that I work with. I have worked in a male dominated field for 37 years and yes women are judged differently than men, but it's a whole new ballgame when they see you as an equal. I am fortunate enough to be respected in my current position, but it wasn't always that way. I got there by trial and error. Maybe some of the women that want to attend this seminar will learn some ideas that will help them and they won't have to experience some of the things that I did.

I find this offensive! Is this 2018 or is it 1968?

Is there a something being offered to the men to teach them how to be cordial and pleasing?

This supports the fact that Women’s communication styles are judged more critically than men's.

When men are viewed as pushy or aggressive they praised.

When women are viewed pushy or aggressive we are judged, punished and then rounded up, and put into a class room for 5 hours and lectured about how to be more cordial and pleasing.

Some one needs to SHUT THIS DOWN!
