Trudy is a member of the Rotary Passport Club. Having worked with the Boys and Girls Club for a number of years, she and her partner Cynthia Woods saw a need to connect volunteers with non profit service organizations an they formed “Team Giving” in February of 2016. Since then they have coordinated 90 projects for 40 non profits and enabled 600 volunteers to log over 2000 volunteer hours. Many companies now pay employees to volunteer time for community service. “Team Giving” finds non profits for them to work with and coordinates their efforts.

March 14th – Chemane Rene’, Raising Awareness…Preparing to Care for our Aging Loved Ones

Chemane Rene’ Gerontology Specialist, Co-Founder and Director of Wellness & Advocacy for LifeMap,

Plan Your Story, will share key findings from her evidence-based research on the effects of family

challenges and its impact on employee productivity and the bottom line.  Her work with the University of

Nevada Sanford Center for Aging along with the Northern Nevada Regional Planning Committee ensures

her wellbeing experiences are rooted in the most relevant scientific evidence and best practices.

This event includes data to help you understand why your employees may not be working at optimal levels and

discover ways to address this growing problem.  It helps you shift focus away from dollar-driven return on

investment to other, more relevant forms of currency, like increased employee engagement and productivity.

She encourages people NOT to wait not for an unexpected crisis to overwhelm their family while

providing forward thinking leaders a clear path toward encouraging their workforce to have these

challenging ‘aging conversations’ with family members.  

Educational and entertaining, the LifeMap presentation raises awareness, educates, inspires and motivates.
