Dedicated to education and empowerment, the ASU Commission on the Status of Women is currently planning the seventh annual CSW/SC Professional Development Conference. The conference is run in conjunction with the ASU Staff Council. The goal of the CSW/SC Professional Development Conference is to provide readily-accessible information, resources, and strategies to help individuals succeed in their current position and in their long term career. Last year, nearly 1000 people participated in the event and this year promises to be even bigger with over 50 workshop sessions and events.
This 2014 CSW/SC Professional Development Conference is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 1st at the Downtown and West campuses and on Thursday, October 2nd at the Tempe and Polytechnic Campuses. The conference will run from 8:30AM-3:30PM on both days. Each campus will offer an exciting variety of one hour workshop sessions and special lunch time events . We have some exciting new additions to this year's conference including more career development sessions, more leadership development sessions, more supervisory training sessions, special two hour workshop sessions, and more seat availability at Tempe. See below for a small sample of the many workshops and events we plan to offer.
The conference is open to all ASU faculty, staff and students -- all men and women. Most importantly, the conference is completely free of charge to anyone who would like to attend. Conference attendees can stay for the whole day – or just attend a single session. So save the date for this exciting event and make accommodations with your unit to attend. (Per SPP 601, supervisors and employees are encouraged to work together to identify reasonable work modifications to allow the employee to attend conference workshops, without negatively impacting service.)
It promises to be a fantastic event with something for everyone!
Registration for the CSW/SC Professional Development Conference is required.
Registration will open for the conference in August. Seating is limited and tends to fill quickly. You are encouraged to register early.
