In 2019 the Faculty of Business and Law Empower Network supported 11 undergraduate students in pursuing professional development in the area of their studies or interest. They attended international conferences, women’s leadership courses, software workshops and student competitions. These professional development opportunities widened their view of where education can lead them, they helped in creating new connections with like minded individuals, and in building real world knowledge and practical skills that will assist them in their careers and in the legacy they will leave for the future.
