The summit is filled to the brim with workshops for students to attend. There will be four engaging sessions focusing on topics such as professional attitude, self-care, peer mentorship, and leading as an introvert. After the final workshop, you’ll hear from keynote speaker Alexa Carlin who will present an inspiring message on empowerment and vulnerability.
