Location: The Fawcett Center

The annual Ballam Women’s Symposium theme this year is “Branch Out & Break Through,” with a focus on how we as career professionals can create support for where we are as well as where we are going. Our speakers will address the challenges in finding harmony between our self-care and working life, balancing our role as parents, spouse, and career women, and using our voice and making a place for ourselves. No matter where you are in this journey, the symposium will provide an opportunity for you to ask questions, build confidence, and create a road map to further your vision for life as you want it. This is a chance to focus on YOU, away from the office, as you meet and network with women from across the university. A light breakfast and healthy lunch are included in the symposium.

Keynote Address: Melissa Vara – Women’s Empowerment Coach & Consultant
