About this Event

Promotions are one of the biggest drivers of representation.

Do you know how to position yourself for career advancement?

As a professional woman of color in higher education, positioning yourself for career advancement means more than understanding the clear-cut obvious skills required for your success. What is really critical for your advancement is that you master the small but powerful skills that are often unwritten and unspoken.

Join me, Francine Parham along with other career experts, speakers, panelists, and facilitators, for this exclusive two part professional development event and program. You'll learn how to master the skills you need to advance. Most importantly, you'll get to develop and practice what you learn and get immediate feedback and coaching. Throughout the event and program you'll have the opportunity to network with other professional women committed to career success.

Here's what you'll experience.
