7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Cassandra Gaisford will focus on career management.

What makes you happy? What’s your passion? Perhaps, like other people, you don’t know. So many people never think about what gives them joy, meaning and purpose before embarking on their careers. Others’ struggle to work out how to follow their passion and still pay the bills.
 
With over 25 years experience as a career coach, counsellor and holisitc psychologist Cassandra Gaisford has seen the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical toll being in the wrong job can exact.
 
The opposite is also true,—when you do what you love work doesn’t feel like work at all.
 
Join Cassandra to learn how to:
 
    • Find your passion and purpose
    • Value and utilise your natural knacks and talents
    • Clarify your best-fit career
    • Make a living in a way that reflects who you are and what’s precious to you
 
Whether you’re just starting out, or you’re a mid-lifer partway through your career, this presentation will help you start living a life you love—before it’s too late.
 
Passion, happiness, joy, fulfilment, love—call it what you will—Cassandra has a proven-track record of success helping people stress less and succeed more.

"The Story of 'Shelley v. Kraemer'" documentary film premiere

"The Story of 'Shelley v. Kraemer'" documentary film premiere

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 - 7:00 pm

The Shelley v. Kraemer U.S. Supreme Court decision, perhaps more than any other ruling in modern times, literally and figuratively changed the face of our nation. This 1948 case ended the practice of "restrictive real estate covenants" that dictated where people could, and could not, live based on issues of race, color, creed and national origin. The documentary will explain and describe the events that led up to this milestone ruling and the actions of the individuals who banded together to help bring it about. Jeffrey Copeland, languages and literatures, will give a brief talk about how this historic ruling changed the country. There will also be film clips of some of those involved in the case and their relatives speaking about their experiences.
