Forté Foundation and UCLA Anderson will present its “2011 Career Lab” to Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, April 12th. The event, which will take place at the Collins Center (Room A201) at 110 Westwood Blvd., 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, break-out sessions 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:
• Professional Development Workshop – Post-graduation job-hunting tips
• Women in Business / Industry Introduction Panel – Perspectives from UCLA Anderson alumni and current MBA students from various industries
• Business School Admissions Tips / Q&A with Admissions Officers
