It’s a new world and Gen Y professionals are approaching careers very differently than their parents. They are no longer staying at on organization for 20+ years and climbing the ranks – rather, they are moving and evolving rapidly. In 2012, feeling successful professionally goes well beyond having a stable position and financial security. Young professionals are building career paths that align with their values, morals and passions. This interactive discussion brings together a mix of corporate, non-profit and entrepreneurial women to share their perspectives and journeys.

Host: Dahna L. Hull, president and general manager, retail sales and service, AT&T Mobility South Texas
