Career Development Series

Take your career to the next level.

Let us help you develop relevant skills and career strategies to improve future possibilities.

Join an exclusive cohort of female leaders in the Career Development Series.

✔️  Maximize your career choices.
✔️  Increase your network of colleagues and mentors.
✔️ Learn from experts through our specific career development curriculum.

 

January 2022 to August 2022 – scroll to the bottom for a complete list of dates and locations.

The 2022 program will be primarily held in-person and, because we will travel to 8 different businesses, proof of vaccination is required to participate in person.  A live-stream version will also be available to accommodate participants when in-person attendance isn’t an option.

The monthly sessions are hosted by some of Utah’s most innovative organizations, offering a peek at various companies and occupations.

The CDS is perfect for the mid to upper-level female employee ready to move up

The cost of the series is a reasonable $995 for eight sessions, including an end-of-session celebration in August of 2022.

“The Career Development Series allowed me to build my network and community of women leaders. This program increased my perspective of what it means to be a woman in leadership. CDS definitely helped me increase my leadership skills and resources.

“As a young Latina, daughter of immigrants, second generation Utahn, and emerging professional, I found hope that women like me can find opportunities in Utah. I feel especially inspired and motivated by the content provided by the invited companies [and presenters], particularly “Defining Your Career” exercise with Instructure, learning about crisis management, and how to shift your paradigm with FranklinCovey. These were very powerful dialogues. I can’t wait to keep learning…My future already feels full and optimistic.
