A Seat at the Table: Stories and lessons from UMD alumni is a new series featuring alumni from the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland, representing an array of industries and organizations. This series focuses on what it means to have a "seat at the table?" How does one get there? Who are your table guests? And how do you use your voice and influence within your organization once at the table? Through this program, we highlight BSOS alumni in mid to senior positions and learn from their leadership and personal experiences. 

This series is sponsored by the BSOS Alumni Chapter Board
