Dare to Climb

Dare to Climb
Do you have your career all planned out, or are you considering several possibilities?
At Dare to Climb, you will meet women from a variety of fields including STEM, healthcare, the arts, and more. Ask questions, learn how they got started, build your network, and explore different career options, and participate in career and life skills workshops designed to prepare you for a successful future.
