Devry University Generation WE Conference

I was invited to speak to young Southern California women at the Devry University Generation WE one day empowerment and educational summit. The topic I chose to focus on was the job market. It was an exciting talk with young women from diverse backgrounds. The turnout was wonderful. Below are key talking points I discussed with the audience, many of which were going to be the first to consider a higher education in their families. I was very proud of them.
