Held at the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA, NetKAL VII Fellows met for their third session from April 20-21. The session focused on leveraging individual energy and expertise in order to build a flexible career.
With workshops covering self-leadership and establishing boundaries, session three was facilitated by Jennifer McClanahan-Flint. McClanahan-Flint was a law firm administrator and human resource professional for more than 15 years. After her success in the corporate world, she shifted her focus to provide a deeper level of service to high-achieving professional working mothers who are transitioning into senior leadership roles in their organizations. With a background of assisting working mothers, McClanahan-Flint’s workshops for session three focused on the balance between work and personal life. NetKAL VII Fellows learned strategies on how to become well rounded leaders by not only focusing their energy on their careers, but their personal lives as well. By setting reasonable goals and habits and equalizing the importance of career and self relationships, NetKAL VII left session three with ways in which to establish a clear and healthy path to success.
Amongst the self-leadership workshops, the distinguished dinner held at the Palo Alto Sheraton provided another night of food and networking. Jane Kim, San Francisco County Supervisor, was the night’s guest speaker. As the first Korean American Supervisor in the US, Kim’s discussion highlighted the rising influence Korean-Americans have over US politics and civic engagement.
