Have you ever considered taking on a leadership role but needed a better understanding of what it takes to be a YP leader? Have you ever been curious as to how the governing body makes decisions for the NYULYP? Or do you just have questions you would like to pose about the NYULYP, how it operates, and what it’s future goals are? January 15th is your opportunity to discuss those questions, weigh in with your thoughts, and learn how you might expand your role in the movement.
This meeting will include guest speaker Wanda Jackson, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Chief Talent Officer, National Urban League. Ms. Jackson plays a key role in the management of the League's leadership development programs, and the exposure of young talent to the non-profit sector through the highly competitive Urban League Summer Internship Program. Committed to the helping people find employment, she manages the League's Annual Conference Career Fair, and is chiefly responsible for the JobsNetwork, an electronic job board.
Join us for the post meeting social at Vermilion Restaurant & Lounge, 480 Lexington Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets.
