...The most important takeway was networking and the need to be flexibile and open to new experiences

I was surprised to learn that many of the facilitators did not have linear career paths...but had very diverse and non-academic paths.  Several of the women with whom I spoke advocated for switching positions and changing things up broader skill sets and to be more open to wide range of opportunities.

I learned a lot about the job market; what specific professions are looking for in those they hire, what are the ideal skills sets, how one gets and job and moves ahead in the field.

It was a great event!  I really enjoyed seeing a community of women supporting not only each other as fellow professionals but hleping to foster the next genertion of women leaders in the arts.
