Reflect, Envision & Act

The 2016 Next Opportunity at Work Conference (NOW Conference) marks the fourth annual event for UC Berkeley staff. The all-day conference is designed to support staff career development through inspiring keynote speakers, concurrent workshops, and career planning resources.

With the continued support of Chancellor Nicholas Dirks, we are thrilled to deliver this event for all of the hard working staff on campus. Reflect, Envision & Act (our theme), engages staff members in finding their inner focus, mapping out their career goals, and learning how to accomplish them.

Managers and supervisors are encouraged to approve requests from staff to attend (PPSM-50)(link is external). The conference has been designed for flexibility, with a few of the sessions being repeated throughout the day in order to accommodate both full and partial day attendance.

This conference is free and open to all UC Berkeley Staff. Download a flyer to spread the word!
