Session II: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Developing a strong network is critical to career success. These meaningful relationships will serve you throughout your career – and you can be a valuable connection for others, too. FOX’s NFL reporter Laura Okmin credits her network in part with helping her to break the barriers of a male-dominated field and ultimately assume the position to cover the biggest names on the biggest stages. Now she’s paying it forward by helping to train, mentor, and prepare the next generation of women to become super connectors. She shares how to be strategic about who you meet, how to meet them, and even how to form lasting relationships. Whether you are looking for success in a mentor-mentee program or growing your career by building meaningful relationships, she will share the best practices for creating the most successful two-sided relationship to ensure it is a win-win.
