Ascend: Empowering Female Students for Success
Are you trying to figure out how to get a job that allows you to be your authentic female self? Do you feel like no matter what you learn in the classroom, you still feel unprepared for the work world? Do you feel like you could use more examples of successful women as role models? Do you want to connect with other female students that have similar experiences to yours? These one hour online sessions are set up to address these issues. Each session will teach critical leadership skills, introducing participants to successful female executives to serve as advisors and role models, and invite you to build connections with other female students with similar experiences. Each of these online sessions will include a 15-minute talk from a successful female executive and a facilitated breakout discussion where students meet one another and deepen their learning and connection.
