Dream It, Be It: Seek Strive and Succeed
Sat, 27 May 2017, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
Soroptimist International of Vancouver (SIV) and The University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Humanitarian Organization for Providing Empowerment (HOPE) will be hosting an event titled “Dream It, Be It: Seek, Strive, and Succeed” Career Conference on May 27 from 10am to 4pm on the UBC campus. This event will bring together a vast array of speakers and community change makers from different walks of life in efforts to empower, educate, and equip youth of this generation with the tools and skills needed to turn their dreams into reality. Young people from local Vancouver high schools, colleges and universities are invited to this conference where there will be a morning of inspiring keynote speakers, a catered lunch, and an afternoon of workshops. This conference will hopefully serve as a launching pad into potential mentorship opportunities, internships, and job-shadowing opportunities with speakers and guests. Our theme this year is centered around breaking gender stereotypes in the workplace and to encourage young people to break out from societal norms. We will offer three $500 scholarships eligible for students to apply who attend the event as an incentive and to recognize outstanding students.
The event is free but as this is our third year providing a free conference to the public, we encourage you to make a donation at the door to support our intiatives. As there is also a capacity for the event and we want to ensure that those who RSVP actually attend, be prepared to receive an email a month prior to the conference regarding food preferences and the official location at UBC which you must respond to within 5 business days. Then you will also receive a phone call a week before the conference to confirm attendance which you must respond to within 2 business days. Failure to respond to this email and call will have your RSVP revoked to open up a spot for another eager individual.
HOPE to see all your lovely faces on May 27th!
