Career Re-LAUNCH

Experience & Format

Career Re-LAUNCH is a five-month experience beginning on January 9, 2019, exclusively for UCLA Anderson alumnae preparing to re-enter the workforce. The program offers a three-day, immersive experience at UCLA Anderson with faculty-led classroom sessions and the Velocity Women's Leadership Summit. Virtual resources, including career coaching sessions, guided career exploration, online learning resources and self-assessments, round out the program.

The Impact

Career Re-LAUNCH is a uniquely comprehensive program offering career development, personal development and academic resources — provided by UCLA Anderson faculty and partners — that will connect program participants with a community of alumnae also taking part in a career re-launch journey.

I surprisingly and unexpectedly landed a perfect fit role post the conference in Feb. The coaching I received at Career Re-LAUNCH was invaluable in terms of owning my story, being competent yet relatable, and not being afraid to negotiate key essentials (e.g. vacation and time with my kids).

I want to thank Career Re-LAUNCH, Anderson faculty and staff for a phenomenal program. The materials we talked about, executive presence, tech, etc and the support from other women was really helpful in helping me land this opportunity.
