UNC Charlotte hosts COACh session
The ADVANCE Faculty Affairs Office on Jan. 19, 2011 held a dynamic session on “Creating Balance and Value in Your Career Portfolio” for UNC Charlotte women faculty from all disciplines.
The highly interactive workshop was led by COACh, which was formed in 1998 by senior women faculty from across the nation and whose mission is to transform the careers of scientists and engineers, especially women.
In this workshop, participants learned how investment of time and energy in a career should be as strategic as developing a financial portfolio that is balanced for different stages of life to reflect personal priorities. External and internal changes often require re-examination and adjustment of these investments as a career progresses. This session assisted participants in assessing their current career-life portfolio, and in planning for changes in this portfolio to better align it with their current and future values and aspirations.
UNC Charlotte ADVANCE conducted previous sessions led by COACh and received overwhelmingly positive feedback. In response, ADVANCE scheduled the 2011 session.
