Post Lunch Social Hour
Following the luncheon, attendees are encouraged to meet with participating non-profit organizations that seek volunteers. These organizations will be hosted in our first-ever volunteer fair, and it is a great way for our young professionals to begin engaging in their community!
Attendees will then receive applied training with their selection of breakout sessions. Each breakout session was selected to help introduce future leaders of our community to specific training relevant to breaking down barriers in regards to communication in the workplace.
