Professional Development Survey

We have created a survey for everyone to participate, which will give us insight into the Professional Development services that are needed and wanted. We will use these to help prioritize and work toward securing more professional development services and events similar to the one on July 25th where we hosted a communication event called “Asserting Yourself as a Woman in the Workplace.”
