Several times a year the ABF Career Alliance is bringing you conversations with valued members of our community. In each session, our guests share impactful events from their own education and careers, and how they are in turn making a positive impact in the world. Through Net Effect conversations our guests offer insights that you can apply to your career right now. Scroll down to learn about our November 12 guest, Michael Brown, a US Navy Chaplain.
Events are broadcast live, on Fridays at 3 p.m. PDT, through Zoom, and available for replay on our YouTube channel after that. Once you register you will receive notification of upcoming Net Effect dates.
We are excited to bring these conversations straight to you, to keep you inspired and driven. Since launching the Net Effect in April 2020, we’ve sat down with artists, activists, educators, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, executives, coaches, authors, and more.
We also offer direct access to our guests through the ABF Career Alliance, giving you the ability to connect one-to-one with questions that can help you with the next step in your career.
