Navigating A Career Transition


Shannon is delighted to be joining EcoWomen Washington DC and Give Pulse for their Virtual Fall Workshop. She’ll be taking part in the break out session and delivering her expertise on mid-career transitions.

Navigating a career transition – whether you’re just joining the workforce as a recent grad, switching sectors, returning to the workforce after a break in employment, or just looking for a change can be a challenge in any circumstance, and especially in an uncertain economic environment. This skills-building workshop will provide you with insight and helpful tools to successfully pivot or begin your career and find your dream job.

In this workshop you will:

  • Hear from Nancy Stoner, President of Potomac Riverkeeper Network, about her experience maneuvering through positions in the federal government, at a foundation, and in non-profits, and how she navigated to where she is now.
  • Join a breakout session, led by experts on the topic of your choosing: Early Career Transitions, Mid-Career Transitions, or Returning to the Workforce after a Break.
  • Network with other participants and engage in peer-to-peer knowledge exchange.
  • Learn from women in the private and public sectors on how to effectively advocate for yourself in a professional setting.
