Cross Your T's to Success: How to Deliver a Great Talk, Get Your New Title and Seize Your Next Career Twist

A Virtual Event from WIE and AGA, sponsored by AbbVie
Tuesday, June 23, 2020
7 p.m. EDT

As we return to new norms within our professional community of gastroenterology and endoscopy, we need to maintain this momentum of promoting effective and diverse leadership within our field. The partnership between AGA and WIE to host a virtual event aims to share essential tools to champion women and under-represented minorities to seek positive opportunities and changes in their careers.

Join us for an interactive learning event with leaders sharing how to make bold moves and advance on your own terms, with takeaways not formally taught nor equally accessible through mentorship and experience.
