How to Ensure a Seat at the Table at the Start of Your Career - Morning Event
4 October, 08:30 - 12:00
GSU Lounge/ Kitchenette at Buckhead Center Tower Place 200, 3348 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta, United States
Getting a seat at the table is no easy feat, and figuring out what to do once there presents its own challenges - especially at the beginning of your career. To kick off the panel, strategies on how to get to the table will be discussed, through personal stories and narratives of the panelists. Panelists will discuss what worked, and what did not. Next, panelists will discuss what comes after you get a seat at the table – how to utilize your network, how to secure spots as key decision-makers, or cues in how to identify decision-making tables to join in on. Panelists will also discuss times that it was difficult to remain authentic when asked to support decisions made by other members of the table or moments where they needed to move away from the table, without losing credibility. Networking to follow, with opportunities to make connections for internships and entry-level positions.
