    Ongoing: Monthly Segal Network Convenings


    • July 2018: Fellows can sign up for ClearlyNext/Segal Career Coaching to use their annual Leadership Development Funds
      • The Segal Program has partnered with ClearlyNext, a coach-guided online career program that helps people of all backgrounds and incomes figure out what work to pursue next and then find jobs doing it.  It was developed to help people make career choices with confidence through a series of quests that are supported via the client's coach.
        A limited number of Segal Fellows will work individually with a career coach who will hold them accountable and support them when they get stuck. The Program will use your 2018-19 Rhonda Shakleford Ulmer Leadership Development Funds to pay directly for and cover your first 3 months of coaching.  After three months, you can end your coaching or decide to continue on your own with ClearlyNext.
        Sign up for a first free coaching session through the Segal/ClearlyNext partnership by August 15th. Spaces are limited.
      • (If you've already utilized your 2018-2019 LDF, please contact Susie to find out about other ways to connect with ClearlyNext.)
