On Friday, January 22, 2016, the Junior League of Tulsa’s (JLT) fourth-annual Mentorship Luncheon will feature etiquette instructor Myka Meier, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette in Manhattan, New York. Meier, an expert in social, business, dining, and royal etiquette, has extensive experience in the luxury, lifestyle, and public relations markets, which gives her a fresh and modern perspective on the etiquette industry. Her social and business savvy has led to recognition from ABC’s “Good Morning America,” The New York Observer, ELLE magazine, and many more. Meier, who studied her craft in the United Kingdom—including under a former member of The Royal Household of Her Majesty the Queen—wants to break down the stereotype that etiquette is outdated, inaccessible, and intimidating to learn.
This year’s Mentorship Luncheon is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to make a positive impression in business and social environments. Meier’s belief that mentorship and etiquette can instill confidence and knowledge in female leaders and professionals dovetails with one of JLT’s key missions—to develop the potential of women.
According to Mentorship Luncheon committee chair Harlan Ross, “The Mentorship Luncheon allows us to live our JLT mission of developing women in our communities through programming and scholarship. You won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to be inspired by the hard work of our scholarship recipients, celebrate your mentor or mentee, and to enhance your social etiquette skills with an internationally acclaimed speaker!”
Beyond leadership development, JLT’s Mentorship Luncheon is a way to highlight one of the many ways JLT contributes to our local community—through education, volunteerism, and, of course, mentoring. January is National Mentoring Month, a time that focuses national attention on the need for mentors to help secure positive outcomes for today’s youth.
In addition to JLT’s training and mentoring services for women and children, the League provides four annual scholarships for higher education—two to high school seniors who have shown a commitment to volunteerism and two to nontraditional students returning to their studies. This program is a key pillar in JLT’s overall mission, as it creates and enables future female community leaders and encourages education and scholarship in women with demonstrated financial need. Proceeds from the Mentorship Luncheon contribute to the scholarship program, and JLT will recognize the 2016 scholarship recipients at the luncheon.
The fourth-annual Junior League of Tulsa Mentorship Luncheon, presented by Williams, will be held on Friday, January 22, 2016, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Southern Hills Country Club (2636 East 61st Street, Tulsa). Individual tickets to the luncheon are $65, and JLT members and the public can purchase tickets or sponsorships on JLT’s website.
