Two keys to future success are understanding the unique value you bring to a team as well as the ability to communicate effectively and confidently. The Communications Pathway, presented by the Brock-Wilson Center for Women in Management and the Communications faculty at Krannert, is a novel initiative open to School of Management students of all levels.
This series of free workshops offered throughout Spring 2023 benefits students by offering higher-level communication skills from advanced courses. Professors use a variety of approaches to explore the spectrum that is communication, and how by mastering certain skills, students will be more successful in school and their careers. Students may attend individual sessions or the entire series. Registration is required.
Director Putman says, "This Communications Pathway is one way the Brock-Wilson Center for Women in Management is supporting undergraduates at Krannert. By bringing this important content to these students, they will graduate knowing they can communicate effectively and confidently."
