Are you thinking about the future of your career but having trouble visualizing it? Does the path to Principal seem too long to plan for?

Join the Emerging Professionals Network (EPNet) to learn more about what the transition from "emerging" to "mid-career" professional might look like. A panel of mid-career professionals (those with ten to 15 years of experience) will speak candidly about the steps they took to advance their positions, the challenges they faced, and the opportunities they created within their firms and their extracurricular activities.

Come prepared with questions to ask the moderated panel, and look forward to networking before and after the discussion.
