Part I (11:00 am to 12:30 pm)

Adapting Professionally: Finding Direction in a Changing World

Session Summary: Learning the skill of adaptation is foundational to our ability to find success both personally and professionally.  And how we respond to change, challenge, and set-back are ultimately what creates resilience.  Because we are in a dynamic, ever-changing world that has recently magnified the impact of additional external stressors, such as the double pandemic, this is the perfect time for a conversation about the intersectionality of our professional identity and strategies for how to adapt professionally.  Whether you have a position secured, or are seeing fewer employment options in the future, join us for an expert-driven discussion panel.
