First Generation Southwest Symposium

Empowered Students Networking

Lisa, Lydia, and Sean had the opportunity to present at Northern Arizona University’s First Generation Southwest Symposium in Mid-October. They each shared their stories and advice on how to create a network of business professionals from scratch, and they taught the Empowered Students methodology. Higher education administrators from other institutions were encouraged to teach their students how to be proactive in pursuing internships/jobs in their fields of interest.

Sean and Lydia also shared their experience with coaching students in the Empowered Students program, and Lisa spoke about how Empowered Students has positively impacted numerous Hispanic Foundation Scholars.
