How does the WEDC Foundation #BreakTheBias?
Updated: Mar 22
By empowering women to harness the power of education for the benefit of themselves and future generations! We want our scholars to claim their seat at the table.
Through professional development workshops and mentoring, scholars are provided tools and guidance to become a more confident professional and even a future leader.
This past February, the Scholar Workshop focused on developing a professional Personal Brand and gave Scholars the opportunity to work on their resumes and evaluate their online presence. To help calm the interview jitters, each scholar practiced with an individual mock-interview and some experienced an additional panel interview.
Lori Fischer with Just Imagine... Coaching and Consulting lead the workshop at Alabama A&M University's Clyde Foster Auditorium. Mentors and Board Members assisted in the interviews, providing quality feedback for the scholars to implement in the future.
We also had the opportunity to take the pictures below in support of International Women's Day and the #BreakTheBias Campaign!
