Young Professionals Summit features Brandman speakers
Brandman University was the presenting sponsor of the Young Professionals Summit in Irvine last week. Chancellor Gary Brahm led the way, opening the program with remarks about the need to transition to an information economy and how Brandman’s new MyPath, competency-based education program, helps meet the needs of young professionals.
“We want to be your partner for life-long learning,” he said.
Dr. Jalin Brooks Johnson discussed “Ethics 101” and urged the group to keep in mind how their life experiences influence how people make choices. “Know your own standards,” she told them. Dr. Deb Ferber, a faculty member in the School of Business and Professional Studies, discussed what it takes to think like an entrepreneur.
Key organizers of the event from Brandman included Dr. Shelly Neal, vice chancellor of strategic initiatives, who brought members of the Outreach team to the event and Nancy Salzman from the School of Extended Education and members of her team.
Also attending the event was Dr. Sheila Steinberg and Brandman students Thomas Verdugo, Monica Pagano and Rebecca Golden. Steinberg is a member of the Irvine Rotary Club, which was also an event sponsor. The Rotary club is working on a mentorship program to connect young professionals to working professionals.
