We all know that 2020 has been… rough. Join us in the new year to build career skills with a full day of presentations and workshops to help 2021 be your best professional year yet! Sessions are led by experienced speakers in the field from across the country, with the goal of providing strategies, skills, and advice on topics relevant to your professional journey.

The day is separated into three sections:

Morning sessions focused on topics for students and emerging professionals, such as:

  • Building and maintaining your network
  • Using social media and LinkedIn professionally
  • Marketing yourself and your transferable skills

A midday session for everyone to:

  • Learn about maintaining well-being as you work
  • Participate in a short guided meditation session

Afternoon sessions focused on topics for mid- and late-career professionals, such as:

  • Managing teams and managing managers
  • Becoming a consultant
  • Fundraising and grant writing
