APABA-DC President Smeeta Ramarathnam mentioned this video to many of you at the Convention, and I want to thank her sharing it with us. The speakers (including Smeeta) raise important issues such as how to deal with career adversity and the importance of advocating for oneself. I encourage you to watch the video and share it with your networks.
