SHPEtinas: Movers & Shakers

In this month’s webinar we celebrate Women’s History month by learning from SHPEtinas and how they are advancing their careers and communities.
Participants will gain tips on how to empower themselves personally and professionally by expanding their knowledge, skills, and confidence as they hear how other successful SHPEtinas have approached key management and leadership challenges.
Panel questions include:
  • What does being a “Mover & Shaker” mean to you? How do you challenge the status quo and change or impact the world or your community through STEM?
  • When you graduated from college, did you imagine you would be where you are now?
  • How was your transition from college to the workforce? What did you learn?
  • If you could give yourself one piece of advice when you were 20 years-old, what would you say and why?
  • Tell us about a time you experience failure at some point in your career? How did you learn from it and where did it take you?
  • What are some ways you have been able to find your passion and what professional accomplishments are you most proud of?
  • What are some rookie mistakes you made in the beginning of your career that you see happening often to others?
  • What is your superpower?
Q&A will follow if time allows.
This is a VIRTUAL webinar being held using Facebook Live on the SHPE National Facebook page on Wednesday, March 28, at 8pm ET/5pm PT.
See you next week!
