12:00p.m. - 2:00p.m.
Bring your lunch and come for an afternoon of networking. Douglas Brooks, Quentin Palfrey, Lori Silver, and Jane Willis will each spend a few minutes talking about their unique career paths and the lessons they wish they had learned earlier in their careers.
The panelist will then come down off the podium to mix and mingle. This should be a great opportunity to meet and make connections with alumni working in interesting positions across a variety of industry sectors.
