Are you a student who identifies as a woman looking to network and connect with other accomplished women in their respective fields?

If you answered “Yes,” come to the “Not All SHEroes Wear Capes” luncheon on Friday, March 22, from 11 am to 2 pm in the Student Activities Center (SAC), Ballroom A for this annual event hosted by the Career Center.  

Career center sheroesAll students are encouraged to attend for valuable discussions about women in the workplace. There will be small breakout rooms based on career interest, where questions and conversations will extend to topics like:

  • Work-life balance, does it affect career success?
  • How does womanhood and intersectionality (LGTBQ+, race, religious beliefs) affect my experiences in the workplace? 
  • What are the cultural differences in women and how do they affect the workplace dynamic?
  • What is happening in respective industries to tackle the wage gap? How can women advocate for themselves?
  • How are strong women in the workplace treated compared to men, and how can women navigate this situation?
  • What are the benefits and obstacles regarding women and their leadership styles compared to men?

This event focuses on career building, shared experiences and common ground. In addition to the breakout discussions, students will hear from a panel of seasoned SHEroes, giving their insight into tackling the workforce, going through trials and tribulations, and thriving in the work they are doing. Attending recruiters will also be promoting internship and job opportunities to students in attendance.

All of these things are going to be discussed and how it affects a person in the workplace.”

The first 100 students to register will receive a free T-shirt for the event, and lunch will be provided. 

This event is co-hosted by Leading Women of Tomorrow, the Society of Women Engineers, and Women in Business.
