New Year, New Beginnings:

Navigating Career Changes for Women

February 7, 2019

6:00 – 8:00 pm

Location: Atlanta Tech Park

We often find ourselves in career jams – should we look for new opportunities or stay where we are, can I move into a different path, is it a good time to be open to new opportunities? The list could go on. We have a panel of speakers lined up to take on questions just like this that we’ve all had at one time or another.
