Davidson College offers freshman and sophomore women from underrepresented groups the opportunity to use their spring break to do a deep dive on professional development. The 4 day bootcamp is called "Suited for Success" and each day focuses on a different career theme, like "Know Yourself, Know Your Strengths," "Brand Yourself," "From Interview to Internship" and "Before You 'Lean In.'" The participants engage in panels, workshops, and presentations aligned with the topics.
I’m a paid professional speaker and also a fanatic for professional development. I’ve attended over 100 conferences / panels in the last few years and speak several times a month, everywhere from industry conferences, to business events, to the Democratic National Convention. Being a panelist that delivers value is a craft, one that I’ve studied by observing as many panels as I can. It’s also an area I’ve worked on through trial and error by being on nearly 100 panels myself.
