ACTIVATE the Future of our Field: A Reverse Panel Experience | Ashley Varol


Participate in a one-of-a-kind reverse panel in which we will discuss how to activate and leverage mentorship through leadership and engagement with the future of our field: students who wish to be us when they grow up. With a mixture of students, alumni, and varied-level professionals, we will discuss and share experiences and consider strategies for engaging, supporting, hiring, and supervising emerging wellness professionals.

Following this session, participants will be able to:

  1. identify the perspective of a college student in the 21st century.
  2. outline strategies for engagement across generations within the workplace.
  3. assess options for engagement and mentorship within and across the field.
