VIRTUAL CAREER ROUNDTABLES
Talent Mobilizes Us

EVENT DETAILS

EMERGE Career Roundtables are a yearly guest speakers series that connect EMERGE high school and college students to a diverse group of industry leaders. Each one-hour long session is exploratory in nature and provides an exclusive opportunity to learn about the variety of career paths possible for talented, first-generation students. Through our roundtables, Houston-area leaders and professionals are able to guide our student’s career exploration process by sharing insights on what skills are important in their field, advice they’d give their younger selves, and more.

 

Previous panelists include Scott McClelland (HEB, President), Anna Rotman (Partner, Kirkland and Ellis), Carlos Jr. Paz (Senior Communications Advisor,Office of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives), and Benjy Levit (Owner, Local Foods Market).
