For 2022 the Houston Chapter of CEO Netweavers planned to expand our outreach and establish a relationship to support the University of Houston - Downtown Campus and their MBA students - the largest MBA program in the State. Most students are first generation college students without a deep support network. On April 21st, volunteers from the Chapter participated in a Meet-The-Industry event where students interacted with executives representing various professional disciplines to talk about the "real world" of the job, success factors, career paths and other issues to help guide educational and career decisions. It was a successful program that we intend to continue and build on.
Maxine Todd, Assistant Director of the Career Center, sent the following note to our participants. "Thank you for taking the time out of your extremely busy schedule to speak with our students at our Meet the Industry event on April 21st. Students appreciated you imparting the skills and mindset it takes to succeed in the business world and they gained valuable insight into your company and career. We hope it was a positive experience for you as well. Based on the feedback from students received, the information you shared was valuable and very enlightening. Again, my sincere thanks for supporting this important career development event. I hope that I can call on you again in the future."
