(WEBINAR) Listening to the Diverse Voices AAEA: Part 5

 "Do what you are interested in. Do not worry about the outcomes. Focus on what makes you happy and satisfied in both personal and professional environments. Explore and learn from different jobs."
-Anonymous, Listening to the Diverse Voices of AAEA: Part 1

Do you ever feel like your life story is different from everybody else’s? Are you searching for somebody you can relate to? Have you been looking for advice in a certain area but unsure of whom to ask? Join the Mentoring Committee and our four invited panelists as we walk down memory lane with each individual panelist on their path to becoming an economist outside of academia. Each panelists will share their achievements and life’s journey within and beyond their resumes. Here you’ll have the opportunity to get to know these four professional individuals on a more personal level and chat with them! You may find that some of their struggles and life experiences may relate to situations you are currently facing and this is your chance to seek advice from them. You’ll learn how our panelists have grown in their professional life and how they manage a healthy work/life balance; all while discovering their personal hobbies and interests and/or other obstacles and hardships they have had to overcome in order to get to where they are now. Questions and comments are highly encouraged from the audience. We hope you will join us tomorrow for this engaging conversation as we connect with our four panelists at our Listening to the Diverse Voices of AAEA: Part 5 event! In addition, if somebody within your network would be interested in joining us for this event, please feel free to share this information accordingly!

If you or somebody you know would be willing to participate as a panelist in the future or you would like to nominate an individual of who’s story you would like to hear and connect with—the Mentoring Committee is always searching for new panelists!
