|Progressionista Book Club|
Where girls read for fun
At our eighth book club meeting for Detroit West, we learned about the power of a secretary! After hearing from our amazing progressionista, who has had several amazing admin assistance roles, we did a filing and scheduling relay race!!! We’re all geared up to start reading Front Desk by Kelly Yang.
Our April 2019 Progressionista for Detroit West is Nickelita Jeffery, Executive Secretary for the Detroit Police Department. She has had a long career of being a secretary and administrative assistant to directors, commanders, and other leaders. Her talk inspired us and taught us the history and dignity of the role of being a secretary.
At our fourth book club meeting for Detroit East, we learned how to manage our money! Thanks to our amazing accountant progressionista, the girls learned about accounting, budgeting, and financial literacy. After that, they did their own budgeting activity with teams! We’re so excited to read Cleo Edison Oliver: Playground Millionaire by Sundee T. Frazier.
Our April 2019 Progressionista for Detroit East is Andrena Taylor, Certified Public Accountant and Senior Associate. She shared her wisdom about her career journey and how she budgets as a recent college graduate who wants to make strong financial decisions. We will use her sage advice as we make better financial decisions of our own!
