UCOP Young Professionals hold first meeting Oct. 28
Are you interested in meeting other young professionals? Come to a brown bag to hear about UCOP’s newest affinity group, the Young Professionals Association.
The group will hold its first get-together on Friday, Oct. 28, 12 to 1 p.m. in 5320 Franklin. Come to chat and brainstorm ideas for supporting the growth, learning and development of young professionals at UCOP.
Ideas for activities include:
- monthly lunchtime or happy hour social meetings
- development sessions on career management
- lunchtime career chats from UCOP employees
- offsite outings
- service activities
“The idea for starting the group was in the works already,” says Shelby Chin, HR compensation coordinator and OP Staff Assembly vice chair, who initiated the group. “But we got inspired and learned a lot from other affinity groups at the Taste of Diversity event in August.”
The target audience, Chin says, is employees with 10 years or less of professional experience, or anyone who is young at heart.
