The Enlightened Professional – Let’s face it. Life is full and frenetic for a professional. While much is offered regarding life balance – and we all believe we need it – what is it we are truly striving for as human beings rather than human doings? Creating a professional life while maintaining oneself as a “whole” person can be challenging. This session mentor will facilitate a discussion on personal tools to achieve thriving through transitions (career and in life). These discussion topics may include creativity, communication, conflict management, leadership, finding your dream job, discovering your “place” or other soft skills by your request.

 

Please Note:

This event is aimed to educate career exploring women in Oklahoma about the breadth of career opportunities in STEM and specifically the Technology field. We want to inspire diverse enrollment into the array of technology training programs available to them, and to cheer their participation in the IT workforce. In recognition of the ongoing gender gap in IT within the classroom and in the workforce, we specifically market this event to women who are either a HS graduate OR a high school student (grades 10-12).
