“PA Women work is transforming lives every day for our neighbors and our own communities.” Those are the words of Anne Kauffman, HR Business Partner at Peoples, an Essential Utility Company. Anne has been involved with PA Women Work since 2017, lending her time and expertise in a number of different capacities. She’s mentored women in our 3 Cups of Coffee program, been a key member of volunteer committees, and interviewed Customer Service class graduates for open positions at Peoples.
Most recently, Anne sits on our Employer Partner Committee providing insights into hiring trends, professional development gaps and other topics that keep our programming relevant to the needs of both our clients and the region’s top employers. Her involvement has allowed her to witness the impact PA Women Work’s programs and volunteers make. “I love that you can see first-hand how your efforts affect women in the community, not at some later date, but now, when it is needed most.”
Anne volunteers because she is passionate about the mission and the work to empower women. “Being involved in empowering women with employment opportunities and helping them build their confidence is amazing and rewarding work. I love to hear the success stories and how far some of the clients have come. It truly is moving.”
