COVID-19 has disrupted many of the traditional aspects of managing our careers-- be it networking, communicating with our most important advocates, or keeping promotion momentum on track. Now that we are halfway through 2020, we wanted to create a dialogue to understand the different perspectives of our challenges.

This workshop will be structured by dividing the group by career level into separate breakout sessions moderated by industry leaders so we can all learn through each other’s experiences and challenges.


Each breakout group will discuss the following:

  • VISION/GOALS FOR 2020: Clarifying what is most important now, professionally & personally

  • OPPORTUNITY SPOTTING: Capitalizing on new possibilities created by change

  • VISIBILITY/NURTURING YOUR NETWORK: How to mitigate “out of sight, out of mind”

  • SELF MANAGEMENT: Strategies for increasing resilience and reducing burnout

After the conclusion of the breakout, the group will come together once again for the industry leaders to share some brief feedback from each group. Notes from all career levels will be compiled and shared post-event. We hope to create some tangible strategies to keep our careers moving forward!
