WEEKLY & MONTHLY ACTIVITIES

IMPACT - Beyond Survival

What is IMPACT?

IMPACT has come about as a response to the growing demands that young professional women face in the workplace. The speaker series aims to address the question of how to meet and increasing workload and heightened expectations, while also making a lasting impact.

Through the advice of leading professionals in their fields, we tackle the questions:

  • How can I build confidence in my work when I am still learning?
  • Is it possible to be a great professional and maintain a steady work life balance?
  • What mentoring opportunities are available to me?

The speaker series is a space where young people from a variety of professional environments can hear questions and difficulties they face. It’s an opportunity to make new connections, and to challenge each other to be even better professionals.
