support for success
Within our pillar of Career Development, we are dedicated to enhancing the professionalism and preparedness of our members for their advancement in the working world. As women in STEM, business, and everywhere in between, there is a need to feel supported in male dominated industries. We're here to break that glass ceiling and equip ourselves to be the future trailblazers and leaders of our fields. From bringing in successful women and prestigious CEOs to speak, to weekly resume workshops, to networking events, Schreyer for Women CD is here to help you be better prepared for work, higher education, and future of success!
