Speaker: Melissa Howell, Vice President, Human Resources, General Motors Company
Introducing Speaker: Jeremy Kearney, Global Interior IRT Co-Chair, General Motors Company

Some people believe that employers should establish their employees' career tracks. In some ways, that makes things easier - you just follow along with what others have planned for you and hope for the best. But such a passive approach to your professional development can lead to a stagnant, unfulfilling career. If you want to be in charge of your own destiny, you need the courage and the drive to forge your own career path. During this career development session, the speakers will engage in conversation about career path, leadership and what senior leaders expect from new employees.
