Chic Perspectives Radio Interview

Fela Strickland-Smith, Jamie Graham, Elizabeth Gordon (host), Heather Rocker, and Mary Lou Heastings
This week, I had the opportunity to join Elizabeth Gordon in the studio for her Chic Perspectives radio show. Joined by some of my favorite women in technology, I had the chance to talk my role at Women in Technology (WIT) and the power of strategic volunteering to build your network.

Take a listen to learn more - and get bonus career advice from the other WIT panelists. Good stuff!

Listen to the radio show here.

If you or your friends are in job search or career transition - remember to utilize strategic volunteering as one of your avenues for success.
