Thank you for making Time to Shine an incredible event!
Time to Shine was the first event co-hosted by SimpleSteps (https://simplestepscc.org) and Bay Area K Group’s W Group for the Korean community. The theme this year was “Femigrant Career Talk.” We provided attendees with an accent improvement workshop, networking opportunities, an inspiring keynote speaker, and resourceful panel discussions to help them meet professionals with diverse backgrounds and learn career development skills. We hope to continue to create more opportunities for people to connect, collaborate, and grow together.
Please take a look at this photo album to see photos from the event!
