Alcott HR Group is proud to announce that its In-House Counsel, Dawn Davidson Drantch, was recently presented with a “Special Recognition” Award from the Moxxie Network. According to Moxxie Network Founder and President Beth Meixner, Ms. Drantch, last year’s “Mentor of the Year” award winner, was recognized this year for her outstanding participation and proactive role in initiating a new policy of monthly conference calls for all mentors. The award earned her a second “Purple Pump Award” a Swarovski purple-jeweled pin – to acknowledge her contributions.
Moxxie Network (www.moxxienetwork.com) is a Long Island-based women’s business community comprised of women and girls from 8 to 70 years old. The mentor award is an outgrowth of the organization’s Mentor Program, which began in January 2010, and was designed to help young female college students learn how to network and gain skills that would help them in their future job search and business career. Through the program, the mentees obtain a mentor as well as gain access to the broader Moxxie community.
As part of its program, the Moxxie Network has workshops on Dressing for Success and field trips to let the students meet successful women representing diverse industries and leading organizations. Other components of the Moxxie Network Mentor Program for mentees include monthly email discussions with their mentors and attendance at various business and networking meetings accompanied by their mentors.
Currently, Moxxie Network has approximately 100 members. For more information about Moxxie Network and its Mentor Program, click here.
