About The Event

As young professionals hoping to make an impact throughout our careers, self-growth becomes a vital component of our success. As a previous union representative and now a federal mediator, Brittney sat at many bargaining tables where she saw the good, the bad, and the ugly ways in which personal attributes impacted the outcome of negotiations, and (ultimately) workplace relationships. She’ll share some common themes that she has seen over the years that she thinks all young professionals would do well to ponder and use to develop better habits for future success and leadership roles.

Registration is required to receive meeting info.
