Apply by April 4th for the Accenture Networking Forum
Accenture believes that attracting, retaining and promoting women is critical to the success of their company. That's why they're hosting the Accenture Women's Networking Forum, a social media webcast for top female students in the United States and Canada.
On Friday, April 15, selected women will attend a 90-minute social media webcast and:
Learn about personal branding; what it is, why it is important and how to develop
Obtain the necessary knowledge and skills to present yourself as a personal brand
Gain a clear understanding of how to use the power of your personal brand
Understand how everything you do contributes to your personal brand: when you type an email you are branding yourself, how you dress, what you eat and how you talk all contribute to your brand

You'll also learn how more than 60,000 women contribute to an environment that’s rich in diversity at Accenture.
