“

Prior to attending the workshop, I was nervous thinking about post-graduation prospects. After hearing candid insights and inspiring stories from leaders and rising stars alike, I’m excited! It was empowering to see so many POC gathered together in one room. Even though the workshop was just a few days, I gained insights that will last a lifetime.

My most important takeaway was that a career path is a marathon, not a race.
I was a grad student, nervous my career plans hadn’t yet panned out. After receiving realistic advice and industry insight– I realized I may be late but my train is always on schedule.
