Money! It plays such an integral role in our lives today, but is often a source of stress and anxiety. Part of the challenge is we are taught not to discuss money or that money should be a secondary priority. What if we had a way to feel empowered when thinking about money, especially as it relates to our careers? If we consider money as a tool that we can control, rather than something that controls us, it can become a powerful mechanism to provide us with the financial freedom to build the career and life we want. It all starts with knowing your worth and knowing you can champion yourself.

In this webinar, Professional Speaker and STEM Career Coach Alaina G. Levine will engage in a frank conversation about money and power. We will address how to look at money as a tool, how to establish your worth, and how to approach money as it relates to career advancement, job searches, and salary negotiation. We will provide a framework for you to get started today to achieve your professional and financial goals, and most importantly, to use money as a way to create Your Unicorn CareerTM: the customized, authentic career that brings you joy, meaning, AND MONEY.


Live captioning and a video recording will be available. This webinar is $29 for non-membersNot a member? Consider joining AWIS and register for FREE:
