Career management is rarely taught but is so crucial to everyone’s success. No matter what phase of your career, these are healthy reminders to take ownership of your path. Terri will give practical advice on how to make big career decisions and how to think about non-traditional and non-linear careers.
Note that Terri has worked at various stages for big corporates, for start ups and from home so her advice will also cover the practical aspects of these different work environments. At the same time, there are global issues in the world that concern us all. Terri will talk about how each of us can make a difference to those issues while also taking charge of our own careers.
