      Women Business Owners Alliance Helps Members Grow Through Education

      When the Women Business Owners Alliance launched in 1982, there wasn’t anything quite like it, Anita Eliason said. “Because there were so few women business owners in the Valley, they felt a need to get together and kind of strengthen their bond and share the experiences they were having that, maybe, were different than the experiences of men in business,” said Eliason, WBOA’s president. “They kind of broke some barriers and did it with a sense of camaraderie with other women business owners.”

      Community Colleges Bear the Brunt of the Pandemic

      Yves Salomon-Fernández says the region’s community colleges were facing some pretty severe headwinds before the COVID-19 pandemic reached Western Mass. in March. Indeed, these institutions, like all colleges and universities, have been seriously impacted by demographic trends — specifically, a decade or more of consistently smaller high-school graduating classes, said Salomon-Fernández, president of Greenfield Community College (GCC). But they’ve also been adversely impacted by what was the nation’s longest economic expansion and historically low unemployment rates, in a continuation of a trend that has become quite familiar to those in the community-college realm — when times are ...

      Asnuntuck Becomes First American Welding Society Accredited Test Facility in Connecticut

      Asnuntuck Community College recently became the first American Welding Society (AWS) accredited test facility (ATF) in Connecticut.

      HCC Zoomcast Focuses on Early Education

      If the “Itsy Bitsy Zoomcast” sounds like something meant for children, that’s not too far from the truth. In fact, the graphic that introduces this new series of short videos is a child’s cartoon sketch of two bespectacled adults, real-life co-hosts Sheila Gould and Liz Charland-Tait. Gould and Charland-Tait are part of the Early Childhood Education program at Holyoke Community College (HCC) and the co-creators of the online series that also has a much more academic and adult-sounding title: “The More We Get Together: Conversations That Build Bridges in Early Education.”
