The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities is excited to announce the HBCYOU Professional Development Speaker Series. This speaker series is designed to connect students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) with non-profit organizations, federal agencies, and young professionals to discuss professional development opportunities and identify challenges and solutions HBCU students face when preparing for and entering the 21st century workforce.
The sessions has been designed in a progression first focusing on self-awareness, career exploration, civic engagement and leadership, personal brand management, and ending with navigating the marketplace for jobs in the public sector.
Plan For Success
Each person brings individual qualities, experiences and values when engaging in leadership; the understanding of these aspects about yourself is essential. In this session students will learn how self-knowledge impacts their goals as a leader and can help them navigate interactions with others. After this session, students will be able to better define who they are, and why they should be sought out!
