The panelists will share how they used networking, graduate school, and an intentional sabbatical to identify “what’s next.” Learn how their action steps made a difference and how they can work for you, too! Hosted by the Alumni Personal & Career Development Center and School of Business Alumni Engagement.
Celebrate the life of Dr. Maya Angelou with AWFUBA
Saturday, January 30 | 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. EDT
Celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Maya Angelou and over 50 years of her groundbreaking autobiography, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings with the Association of Wake Forest University Black Alumni (AWFUBA)! Join us virtually as we discuss the book and the phenomenal woman in January. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.
Virtual Call to Conversation
This online version of a Call to Conversation facilitates “virtual” face-to-face engagement through remote video conferencing. Developed in response to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, a Virtual C2C employs free, user-friendly Zoom technology to bring Wake Foresters together from their computers or mobile devices anywhere in the world. A Wake Forester volunteers to serve as Conversation Leader, and the C2C team manages the guest list and registration. Digital resources are available for the Virtual C2C Conversation Leader as well as participants.
