C100 / NUEA West Summer Networking Event For Young Alumnae and Female Students
The Northwestern University Council of One Hundred and NUEA West are hosting a small networking event for female undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young alumnae, in the Los Angeles area.
Please join us for some fun social time, and a series of “round tables,” talking about your careers-challenges you’re facing (and opportunities), and decisions you may be contemplating about changing jobs, changing careers, or going back to grad school. Please come with a couple of topics you’re most interested in talking about.
C100 SUMMER NETWORKING EVENT
Sunday, July 29th
El Torito Grill, Beverly Hills
C100 members are leaders in their professions who serve as career mentors for female students and young alumnae. C100 members bring a wealth of experience (and wisdom) from their own backgrounds. Here’s just a sample:
- A Communications major who combined her extensive entertainment background with her entrepreneurial spirit to establish her own production company.
- A learning disabilities teacher who transitioned into corporate America, got a PhD., had a family, and became an entrepreneur who runs her own management consulting firm and writes/produces award-winning features and short films “on the side.”
- An advertising executive who became and author, university instructor, executive coach, and non-profit founder, while raising three sons.
- A Communications major who became an MD specializing in international emergency medicine, then transitioned into entertainment as a medical advisor on “ER”, eventually becoming an award- winning writer on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
- A communications major who wrote the most watched episode in TV, taught screenwriting at UCLA, and transitioned into literature, writing a best-selling novel and two other books while raising a son and keeping a husband happy.
- Two Medill grads-one a best-selling memoirist, and the other an associate producer of Dateline on NBC, with a special skill for murder trials.
