Here are a few quotes from past WICT Washington DC/ Baltimore Chapter scholarship attendees regarding their EDS experience:
“In 2016, I attended the WICT Leadership Conference and Executive Development series with the help of scholarships from the WICT DC/Baltimore chapter. Both events aligned me with like-minded professionals that are determined to gain as much knowledge as we can about becoming better leaders in order to strengthen our organizations. The breakout sessions and panel discussions helped me hone the leadership skills that I will need to master in the next level of my career. ”
“I highly recommend this series to anyone who is looking to take not only their career but their life to the next level. You have to be open and ready to face the challenges within you and be prepared to build upon a new foundation of presences within you.”
“The courses strengthen my interpersonal skills and taught me how to do excel while remaining authentic.”
“The conference also teaches you how to have your authentic brand, full of integrity so that people can trust you to promote you to the next level.”
