Options are Power book cover

Join us in person Friday June 10 from noon-1:30pm over lunch with author Donna Peters MBA’99 for a discussion of Options are Power: Career Strategies for High Performers Who Want a Life.

Quoting Amazon: “No matter where you are right now, you need options. When you have options, you’re in control. You make decisions from a position of strength. You run to something, not from something. Options Are Power provides strategies for surrounding yourself with options.” Join to this session to come away with a personal plan to increase your career options. Hosted by the Executive Director of the Graduate School’s Careers Beyond Academia, and featuring in-person the author, Donna Peters MBA’99

July 12 noon-1pm (in-person over lunch), Endurance, facilitated by Executive Director Susi Varvayanis

Endurance (by first time book author Alfred Lansing) is a book about the true story of Ernest Shackleton’s South Pole adventure/fiasco; an incredible treatise of persistence and positivity despite despair, with great lessons on leadership, teamwork, looking out for each other across differences (economic backgrounds, social status, experience, age, personalities, countries of origin) and learning from failure. We’ll also look at the amazing historical images taken by the photographer, Frank Hurley, that were part of an American Museum of Natural History’s exhibition. Come be inspired!
