Meet New People
The Walden Social Change Networking Hour is a unique opportunity to connect with students, alumni, and staff to spark meaningful conversation. As an online student, it can sometimes be difficult to build meaningful relationships with fellow students and alumni. During this live event, you will be able to chat with Walden community members from all over the world who share your social change interests. The Walden Career Connections platform saves a transcript of your chats so you can follow-up after the event. Exchange contact information or connect on LinkedIn to continue the conversation!
Share Your Passion for Social Change
As Walden University President Jonathan Kaplan said, “Every day around the world, Walden students, alumni, faculty, and staff serve their communities in many ways large and small. This continual commitment to service is not only a reflection of our mission, it is a part of our DNA.” We know that you are passionate about making a difference in your community, your profession, and the world! Support your peers and collaborate as you share causes, organizations and volunteer experiences. Prepare to inspire and be inspired by the innovative ways Walden’s community members are using their skills to address challenges at the local level.
We all know that networking is important to professional development, but many people find it intimidating and awkward! The Walden Career Connections platform is designed to make networking easy, fun, and painless. The chats are timed and text-based, which ensures that conversations are focused, and you always have someone to chat with. Best of all, you can attend the event from anywhere with an internet connection – even from your couch!
