Alumni Office Hour: Leverage Co-op to Find Your Passion

Wednesday, November 9, 2022 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST

Vitumbiko Mhango

Though parks planning was not Vitumbiko Mhango’s intended career path, she has no regrets about falling into it. Vitumbiko used her co-op experiences to filter what she enjoyed and what she didn’t – allowing her to find her passion for parks planning.

But you don't have to be a co-op student to benefit from this event!

Join Vitumbiko to hear about her experience as a Black female in a predominately Caucasian male field. Learn how to be confident in yourself and the knowledge you possess, how to be open to constructive criticism and how to learn from your mistakes.

Join us Wednesday, November 9, 2022

5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. ET

Zoom - link will be provided upon registration 

Submit your questions for Vitu when you register or ask them during the event.
