Creating Confidence (WEI Talks)

Van Munching Hall Room 1335

This event's theme is focused on creating confidence wherever you may find yourself as well as how to deal with being the one and the only. Furthermore, for those of you who don't already know, WEI seeks to always be transparent in these spaces, so this is an opportunity for you to come with any questions you have about classes, internships and career opportunities, and more. Moreover, this is a more casual, internal event so feel free to ask anything and our mentors will advise you to the best of their abilities.
