Turning Career Adversity into Career Success
Organizer: Mariana Zavala Serret
As professionals, success comes with it’s fair share of adversity. When building a career it can feel overwhelming, as if we are the first to face challenges along the way. Our event will focus on having an open conversation around adversity, acknowledging its ever presence, and recognizing some of the unique challenges faced by women, minorities, and immigrants.
Each panelist will share their experiences overcoming adversity and reaching success in their careers, with a strong focus on lessons learned and actionable items. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions, engage in discussion and participate in building success together. Following the panel will be a networking period for attendees to explore the topics discussed with the panelists and other attendees.
