ABOUT CAREER UP NOW
Career Up Now empowers Jewish emerging professionals to advance their careers while incorporating Jewish values into their lives, through innovative networking and education opportunities with Jewish industry leaders.
Career Up Now’s intergenerational, relationship-building, immersive experiences and ongoing programs strengthen Jewish community as professionals of all Jewish affiliations, across all industries, and of all ages and backgrounds - including a majority who are minimally engaged in Judaism - explore Judaism’s timeless wisdom and find relevance and meaning for their professional and personal lives.
PURPOSE OF EVENING
As we develop our Career Up Now communities in local cities our goal is to engage industry and community leaders of all ages to serve as the individuals who will advise and become mentors for our emerging professionals. To do this, prior to launching a cohort, we engage community members through innovative awareness experiences whose design reflects the Career Up Now methodology.
WOMEN OF WISDOM: MIX, MINGLE, & MENTOR
This is a women’s evening of wisdom sharing where individuals will gather to share their experiences with mentoring throughout their lives, and engage in dialogues around the importance of those mentorships...both being a mentor and being mentored.
