Join the U-FLi Center and the CareerLAB for this year’s U-FLiCON Remix!

For this special rendition of the CON, we’ve invited Paul Tran `14 to facilitate a workshop for student participants and provide a keynote address.

Additionally, alumni from a variety of industries will join us for a closing dessert reception and will be eager to share their experiences about how they navigated early careers as FLi graduates.

Come ready to listen, engage, and connect!

About the Workshop:
Participants in this generative writing workshop will read “Autobiography of Eve” by the poet Ansel Elkins. “I did not fall from grace,” Eve says. “I charged towards freedom.” We’ll write and share our own “Autobiography of…” poems, and in doing so, we’ll talk about the myths constructed about us and how, from the classroom to the workplace, we reinforce or subvert these myths.
