    Praise for the 2018 Elevate U Women’s Symposium!

  2. Katrina Johnson

    “When I signed up this class, I was little hesitant thinking this is another intra-campus mingle event among women. I did it anyway just to give a try. The program surprised me in many great ways.”

  3. Katrina Johnson

    “I felt validated in the personal struggles I have as a working woman but left with a feeling of hope and direction in how to further my career.”

  4. Katrina Johnson

    “It was such an honor to be in a room full of such amazing women. It really awakened my desire to bring these messages into the workplace and start conversations. There is still so much opportunity for growth in our organization and I want to be part of that change.”

  5. Katrina Johnson

    “It was a wonderful and inspirational day.”

  6. Katrina Johnson

    “Very well planned. I would come next year.”

  7. Katrina Johnson

    “The Elevate U event provided me with a day to reflect on my personal brand – what it is now and what I want it to be. The presenters gave me the tools and confidence to work towards bettering myself. It was also great to be in a room of working women, most who were mothers, and share our ideas throughout the day. I’ll definitely attend again!”

  8. Katrina Johnson

    “Wonderful! Empowering! Smart! All of the speakers were well thought out and topics that were needed for “today’s woman.”
