Networking Skills

November 2021

 

During the month of November, WIB’s EmpowHER program focused on networking skills! 

 

Our mentors were able to help teach their mentees strategies on how to network effectively and create meaningful, professional relationships. Mentees had the opportunity to participate in a Networking Do’s and Don’ts Activity, as well as a fun game of Networking BINGO! 

 

During the big event this month, we collaborated with Goodman Career, who hosted a “How to Leverage LinkedIn” workshop. This workshop focused on how to develop and manage your network, while also providing tips for creating a successful profile and building your network to assist in job searches.

October 2021

 

October was the first month of WIB’s brand new EmpowHER program, where program members focused on goal setting and mental health awareness. 

 

Our mentors were able to help teach their mentees strategies and ideas on how to stay organized during this school year. The mentees also created vision boards to showcase their plans and goals for the year. 

 

During the big event this month, we hosted an #IamRemarkable workshop--a worldwide Google Initiative empowering underrepresented groups and everyone to celebrate their achievements. This workshop served as a reminder that self-promotion and self-advocacy are significant parts of the goal-setting process. Alongside this workshop, we facilitated a brief roundtable discussing mental health and tips on how we all prioritize mental health.
