Career Corner: Networking for Women in Higher Education
By Caprice Lantz, (former) Assistant Director, University of Baltimore, Career Center

Networking is the process of finding and developing mutually rewarding relationships with people for enjoyment, learning, helping others, and advancing your career. As we discussed in the newsletter last fall (http://www.usmwf.usmd.edu/Networks.html) it is a key ingredient for career success. If you are interested in furthering your career in higher education, consider getting involved with the following organizations. They offer  unlimited opportunities to build your network, find mentors, develop new skills, and expand career opportunities.

“Networking is a key ingredient for career success.”

The Maryland Network, a state chapter of the American Council on Education's Office of Women in Higher Education, dedicates itself to supporting the professional development of women in higher education who aspire to leadership positions.  It does this by advocating for women in higher education and by encouraging the development of their abilities through mentoring and networking programs.
