Finding Your Confidence (And Not Letting the Brushback Pitch Take You Out of the Game)

Tuesday, March 7, 2023

Noon - 1:00 PM

SMC Campus Center, Room ELM 210 B

In honor of Women's History Month, the Intercultural Center and UMBrella invite you to a powerful conversation on finding your confidence presented by Dr. Kerri Phillips, senior engineer at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

Traditional resumes highlight accomplishments but conceal the setbacks that occurred along the way. As a result, the resumes of our role models can often be intimidating, and similar success may seem unattainable, especially at moments of failure. When you consider additional social and cultural complexities, such as those often experienced by women in male-dominated career fields, it can be hard to find your confidence. Dr. Kerri Phillips will discuss her path to learning to cultivate confidence, the social phenomena that affected that journey, and strategies to grow your confidence.

Lunch will be provided starting at 11:30 am followed the presentation from 12 - 1 pm.
