Shifting Gears Workshop

Are you shifting gears in your work life? This intensive workshop, led by Alumnae Career Services Program Manager Cori Ashworth, is designed to foster the reflection and creative planning you need to attain your goal. Whether you’re planning a return to the workplace after time off or are considering a new career direction, you will learn how to evaluate your needs and strengths and develop plans to move forward effectively. By meeting with like-minded alumnae, you can share your ideas and draw on their insights and life experiences as well.
