This three part series will allow students to take a deeper look into the world of entrepreneurship from understanding what skills you need (and likely already have) to learning where to begin and how to get others on board. These workshops are perfect for budding entrepreneurs but are also useful leadership skills in all areas.
The registration link will allow you to register for all three workshops; we encourage you to take all three workshops in this series but it is not required.
Discover Your Entrepreneurial Spirit
Instructor: Nathalie Molina Niño
Wednesday, October 3, 6:30pm – 8pm
Location: Diana LL103
Entrepreneurs are people who think out of the box and make their own rules. But where do they begin? Does becoming an entrepreneur require specific expertise, innate skills, gall, or luck? In this workshop, we will introduce the principles, skills and ideas that it takes to be successful in the startup world. You will learn how to harness entrepreneurial spirit—the ability to be flexible, persistent and adaptable—in every aspect of your life. Spoiler alert: you already have all the skills you need!
Crafting A Pitch
Instructor: Avani Patel
Wednesday, October 17, 5pm – 6:30pm
Location: Diana 504
In this fast-paced interactive workshop, participants will learn how to craft a dynamic entrepreneurial pitch. We will identify the critical elements of content that should make their way into every pitch and demonstrate how to deliver those elements in the most compelling way.
Innovative Tools for Social Impact
Instructor: Garance Choko
Wednesday, October 24, 5pm – 6:30pm
Location: Athena Center Conference Room, Milstein Center 404
Utilizing cutting-edge design and systems thinking tools such as participatory design, power mapping and rapid prototyping, students will learn how to expose complex social realities and appropriately define social impact. Students will map interrelated factors that perpetuate social and economic inequality and develop a series of pathways that can positively and sustainably impact targeted communities.
In this interactive workshop, recruiter, career coach, and Barnard alum Caroline Ceniza-Levine will cover: the different components of a job offer, a 3-step process for negotiating, strategies for preparing for a salary negotiation, and common mistakes to avoid.
Through small group and partner exercises, participants will practice negotiating skills and get tips on how to continue developing these skills in the future. Bring your questions -- there will be ample time for Q&A!
Date: Wednesday, November 13, 2018 Time: 6:30pm-8pm Location: Diana 203 Instructor: Caroline Ceniza Levine
