This fall we have been prioritizing the professional growth of both our Fellows and our partners in the UtmostU network. Collaborating with 220 Leadership, based in the Chicago’s 1871 Entrepreneurship Center, we built a virtual training series called “15ForYourFuture.” In short, 15-minute webinars Fellows learned about interviewing, financial literacy, and time management skills. We have also been inviting guest experts to speak to our networks partners to address topics like career mapping, mental health first-aid, the needs of new moms, and emergency funding.
