Star’s Corner: Fast-Track Your Learning with NAPW Educational Resources

Education is power. It is the foundation for everything you want to accomplish, personally and professionally.  I’m returning to the University of Houston, my law school alma mater today to host an NAPW Power Networking Event, so the subject of continuing education seems especially appropriate. I have often said, my legal education is absolutely the foundation of everything that I’ve been able to accomplish.

With the rise of technology and unforeseen shifts in industry trends, it’s crucial to continuously update your skill set to help you stay ahead of the game. I like to look at continuing education as a life-long learning philosophy—a commitment to enlighten, enrich and empower yourself, always.

Wherever you are in your career, NAPW Educational Advancement Resources can help fast-track your learning to advance or continue your education, acquire new skills or develop what you already know. It’s not just about moving forward—it’s about moving forward at your own pace. All of our educational services are easy-to-use and available on-the-go wherever you are and whenever you need them.

Lucky for us, today’s education is not limited to formal study in a classroom or university and it doesn’t have to burn a hole through your wallet. For instance, the NAPW eChapter hosts bi-weekly virtual events where members across the nation come together, learn from one another and discuss important topics, such as how to optimize your personal brand, the importance of networking and the art of negotiating.

As a member, you have exclusive access to a network of more than 850,000 professional women who can help you expand your knowledge base and offer priceless professional advice. Remember, networking is not only about what someone else can do for you. It’s about what you can also do for them. We all have something to learn and something to teach—knowledge shared is power multiplied!
