Stepping Up

March 2021

Message From the Executive Director

Like other organizations, S.T.E.P. had to pivot during COVID and create a new direction for our work. We typically host face to face events. So like the rest of the world, we began to ZOOM, ZOOM, ZOOM. During the months of February and March, S.T.E.P. hosted three Lunch and Learns with hopes of targeting graduating seniors and post-secondary students ready for the world of work. The webinar videos are below. Please share and use them.

You will also find resources shared by our guest panelists.

Also in this edition, we are introducing our two newest team members, Katrina Futrell, Business Liaison and Ramla Siddique, Marketing Intern. We are thrilled to welcome them to the S.T.E.P.

Best to all,

Pamela K. Gould
