Recharge and Revive

As we begin to bid adieu to the summer humidity, the start of a new school year can be the perfect opportunity to assess your progress towards personal career goals.  Whether you’re still finding your footing or leaps and bounds beyond your goals, WWPR is here to help you continue to grow.

One of my favorite things about this industry is that it thrives with collaboration and creativity — two things that WWPR knows best. In DC, there’s no escaping politics, so learn how to work with your government counterparts at our members-only WWPR-WGR Mixer on September 13 at a rooftop with views of the monuments. Digital and data more your speed? We’re partnering with the National Digital Roundtable for a discussion “China: Digital Revolution Revolutionizing Digital,” where a panel discussion will be followed by a networking reception and yes, you guessed it — WWPR will be there. 

I know the summer humidity can cause a feeling of burnout, so revive your creative juices at one of WWPR’s upcoming Signature Events. Save the date for the annual Woman of the Year Luncheon on Friday, November 9 and the Media Roundtable on Monday, October 22. These are some of my favorite of the WWPR programming, so you don’t want to miss it and tickets do run out.

My last suggestion if you need a little more energy in your career? Make sure you’re an active WWPR member and take full advantage of ways to engage — hint: join a WWPR Committee — where you can enhance your digital chops, utilize your skills to help a local non-profit, or lead the planning for an upcoming event with your peers.

If you recharge your energy on a summer vacation, think of WWPR programming as the perfect opportunity to refocus your career — just in time for the fast-approaching fall.
