UCLA Anderson School of Management and the Forté Foundation Bring the "2012 Career Lab" to LA Women

Forté Foundation and the UCLA Anderson School of Management will present their 2nd annual “Career Lab” in Los Angeles this April. Business is changing, and women on campus are invited to be part of it! The event, which will take place on Wednesday, April 11th at UCLA Anderson, B210, Gold Hall, 110 Westwood Plaza, will present panels of career women who will share how they have benefited both personally and professionally from a career in business and an MBA . The event will also offer networking, a career workshop about breaking into different industries, and refreshments. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore their own passions and learn strategies for applying them to a professional career.

The Career Lab will present women’s perspectives on topics that are important to undergraduate women, including a “Career Workshop” and “Women in Business Panel.” “Our sponsors understand that women need to align their interests, passions and career goals. That is why we want to demonstrate to undergraduate women how they can realize their goals and dreams within a business environment,” said Forté Executive Director Elissa Ellis Sangster.

The program will include:

  • Professional Development Workshop – Post-graduation job-hunting tips
  • Women in Business Panel – Perspectives from UCLA Anderson alumnae and current MBA students from various industries
  • Networking
  • Business School Admissions Tips / Q&A with Admissions Officers

Undergraduates at area colleges and universities are invited to take part in all or part of the Career Lab offerings. Women of ALL majors are encouraged to attend. The Career Lab is a non-threatening yet powerful forum for young women to figure out what they want to do with their professional lives.
