Over the past year, we’ve encountered unexpected shifts in the arts and culture industry—and as professionals, we’ve faced new challenges, furloughs, layoffs, and drastic changes to our work flows. How do we navigate this changing world of work when so much is out of our control? In this workshop, we’ll explore new mindsets and tools that allow us to navigate our professional lives with purpose and adaptability to change. Learn how to create a cohesive, mission-driven narrative of your career path—even when that path has many twists and turns. You’ll walk away with tools to help you articulate your story (no matter your job status) and confidently convey the transferable skills that you bring to the table—so that you can take control of your career path and open yourself up to new professional opportunities.
