Building Socially Engaged Careers that Make a Difference
Career Month Workshop
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 · Noon - 1 PM
How is it possible for people early in their careers to integrate their social and civic concerns into their work? How can you navigate work environments that don’t always welcome people to show up as their whole selves and act on their passions? Hear from UMBC alumni in a variety of fields about the practical steps they are taking to build careers that make a difference in connection with the issues that matter to them.
