Forbes august 2 workshop image

As summer winds down, let’s hone in on what we want in the year ahead. Forbes and Girls Write Now meet to map out a course for success!

In this workshop, we will set intentions by establishing goals and making lists—including a college or graduate school list—and engage in discussion to see ourselves reflected back at us, as mentors share their own college and career journeys.

Don’t miss this opportunity for a cross-generational exchange of wisdom and summer smiles, and the exploration of our hearts’ desires.
