Join Ellevate Pittsburgh to break down two episodes of the Ellevate Podcast and discuss how purpose and intention can fuel your career decisions.


Tue, Oct 19, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT


Ellevate Network’s weekly podcast, Conversations with Women Changing the Face of Business, is an amazing resource, providing inspiration and practical tips from diverse, successful women in business. 

In this event, our guest host (and chapter marketing lead), Barb Strnad, of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C., will help us break down the thoughts, advice, and stories shared in two of the podcasts episodes. We will focus on the ideas of finding a purpose and creating intentions that help guide your career choices and ensure that your life is more fulfilling.

Below, you’ll find a brief description of each episode and a reference to the timestamps we’re going to emphasize in our discussion. But remember, while listening ahead of time is encouraged, it's not required. And if you're short on time, focus on the time stamps described below (and click it up to 1.5x).
