How it Works

WOCGet set for an exciting, fast-paced morning where you get the chance to talk with some amazing women in your community. The day will start a light snack while you review the available Career Mentors so you can make a plan for who you would like to sit down and speak with. After a keynote address, you will circulate through 5 sessions to meet and interact with women from 5 different career backgrounds. There will be a wide variety of careers to choose from – some you may be familiar with and some you may not. After all, this event is geared toward exposing you to your World of Choices, which means that we not only want you to find out more about what you think you want to do, but also show you about some of the other exciting possibilities out there.

At the end of the 5 sessions, lunch will be served and door prize winners announced. You will also be asked to complete a short survey before leaving the event.
