Dynamic Paths to Career Success Event hosted by the Dow Jones Black Employee Resource Group

On Thursday, February 28, 2019, Dow Jones Black Employee Resource Group hosted Dynamic Paths to Career Success. Mark DeCambre, Editor at MarketWatch (and a 1992 Alumnus of Simsbury A Better Chance), led the panelists in a lively conversation. A Better Chance Alumni and Scholars asked questions that will help them blaze their own path to a successful and meaningful career!

This was an exciting opportunity to hear from successful professionals of color about their unique journeys. From their first jobs out of college, career moves along the way, what led them to their current leadership roles – and the challenges they navigated throughout.

Mark DeCambre, Editor at MarketWatch, moderated the panel.  DeCambre is a 1992 Alumnus of Simsbury A Better Chance.

Panelists for the event included Dow Jones employees: Omar Knight, Regional Sales Director; Ray Smith, Fashion Reporter; Kristin Smith, Sponsorship Activation Manager; and Ray Garrick, Counsel.
