The Strategy Sessions kicks off new season, celebrates National Career Development Month with the Public Leadership Education Network on Tuesday, November 5, 2013
November 5, 2013 marks the new season of The Strategy Sessions radio show. To mark the occasion, we are unveiling our new branding, including the new LIVE CHAT feature on the show page, show logo, and the new Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thestrategysessions).
During November, we are celebrating National Career Development Month. On the first show of the new season, we welcome Dawn Culpepper, Director of Programs and Operations for the Public Education Leadership Network (PLEN) in Washington, DC. Ms. Culpepper will shed light on how the organization prepares young women for careers in elected office, advocacy, and in communities across the country. She will also discuss how today’s women leaders have tough issues to tackle – including the recent government shutdown and consensus building – and the organization’s upcoming event, Women, Law, and Legal Advocacy Seminar featuring keynote speaker, Heather Podesta.
We encourage listeners to call in or email us with questions about PLEN, women in leadership roles, challenges women in the workplace confront, or career development for young women.
