Women’s Conference in Minneapolis Celebrates Contributions and Experiences

More than three dozen attendees enjoyed an evening of enrichment as the Northland District Diversity Committee

celebrated March as Women’s History Month at the Minneapolis Post Office on Mar. 7.
The Women’s Conference recognized women’s contributions to history and contemporary society. Exhibitors provided information on a variety of health, financial and educational topics. Attendees also had the opportunity to hold mock one-on-ones with local postal leaders to polish their interviewing skills.
Speakers at the event included Northland District Senior Plant Manager Erica Brix, Local Business Agent for the American Postal Workers Union Peggy Whitney, and Retail Business Technology Operations Specialist Orysia Karkoc. All three began their postal careers as Letter Sorting Machine (LSM) clerks in Minneapolis, but their career plans took them in different directions. Each shared their work experiences during the conference and described the steps they took to build their successful careers.
