Michigan Shifting Gears
Michigan Shifting Gears, a career transition program for seasoned professionals who are looking to change careers, hosted its graduation celebration at OU INC in December. The event was kicked off by the program’s creator Diana Wong, PhD, founder and CEO of Sensei Change Associates, as well as Amy Cell, Senior Vice President of Talent Enhancement at the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. The keynote speaker for the graduation was Retired Major General Robert W. Smith III.
Shifting Gears is designed for people with several years of work experience who are looking to begin a new career. The program was started in 2009, and is designed to aid in the career transition process, regardless of participants’ current employment situations.
Registration for winter 2014 cohorts, which will be held in the Great Lakes Bay region and Ann Arbor, closes on Friday, January 10. Future classes will be held throughout the state beginning in April. For more information or registration, visit http://www.mitalent.org/michigan-shifting-gears-program.
