The Sant’Anna Institute International Internship Program is proud to present the LEaDing Students to Success Webinar, where we will discuss our program’s strategies on guiding students on confronting challenges, being empowered by adversity, and turning it into a benefit of their experiences.
We will have two special guest speakers: Katie Nageotte, Gold Medalist for the Women’s Pole Vault in the Summer 2020 Olympics as well as Caroline Caporossi, a Sant’Anna alum who is the Founder and President of The Association for the Integration of Women in Modena. Both women will share their success stories, in particular how they navigate challenges in both professional and intercultural settings.
Please email Internship Coordinator, Emily Hammeren at firstname.lastname@example.org for information to join.
