What was it like for a woman climbing the professional ladder in Madison over the past 35 years?  On this program, five charter members of TEMPO Madison, an invitation only, peer-to-peer organization that connects women leaders with diverse backgrounds, describe their journey and the challenges and insights they encountered along the way.  As you will hear from these business-seasoned women, there is much to learn from the past.

TEMPO Madison is celebrating its 35th Anniversary this month.  When it was created, TEMPO’s mission was to support, empower and mentor female leaders to break down barriers and unite women executive within a single community. TEMPO has remained true to its mission, but the dynamics of change have expanded the numbers and influence of women leaders in the business world.

Guests:  Amy Olejniczak, Associate Director, Wisconsin Alliance for Women's Health; 
 Erica Koepsel, PATCH Program Manager and Dane County Coordinator; 
 Teen Educators,  Song Kim and Oliver Soler

For adolescents to be their healthiest, they need to engage in open, honest, and medically-accurate discussions with their health care providers.  In reality, providers and teens don’t always speak the same language.  PATCH (Providers And Teens Communicating for Health) is a teen-delivered education program targeting barriers that interfere with the ability of health care providers and teens to communicate effectively with one another about sensitive health topics - such as sexual health, mental health, alcohol and drug abuse or safety.

On this program, you'll hear how PATCH works to address what teens want: (!) To know their visit will be confidential; (2) To not be judged or criticized; (3) To be educated, engaged and empowered through open and honest communication.

Applications are now being accepted for Teen Educators. The only requirement for these paid positions is to be in high school by the fall of 2016. For more details and to apply, go to wipatch.org.
