First Annual OC Career Symposium

On Wednesday we held our first Career Symposium.

22 women of various career backgrounds from around the country gathered at Oakland Catholic to inspire students as they start to consider life after OC.

Keynote speaker Demeatria Boccella, founder of FashionAFRICANA started the day with a powerful talk on entrepreneurship and finding one's purpose. Students then chose three of the five available panel sessions to attend throughout the rest of the day. Topics included: Advocacy and Community Development, Medicine, Finance, Disruptive Innovators in Technology, and Women as Entrepreneurs.
