Hone your networking skills so that you can make an impact with your unique skillset.
People have varied reactions to the word “networking.” For example, women sometimes have adverse feelings about networking as they don’t wish to feel they are “using” people. However, this reluctance can hinder their career progression and ability to make an impact where their skillsets would be an asset.
In this 90-minute training, you will learn from Provost Karlyn Crowley as she talks through the importance of networking for women and gives you insights into skills you likely already have that can help you to network effectively – not only furthering your own career but offering your skills and wisdom to others as well.
Who Should Attend
Women leaders across all areas of campus, at all levels.

In this first section, we will discuss skills you can build that will help you to think differently about networking. You will explore a few new concepts, then practice them in small groups.
In this second section, you will build on the skills you learned and develop a strategy for diving into more networking opportunities. As with the first section, you will have a chance to explore your ideas with peers.
Finally, we will close with how you can develop networking habits over time. What will successful networking look like for you? How will you plan for future opportunities? You will explore these concepts and develop an action plan for homework.
