Fall Kickoff on the Inward-Outward Model of Career Development a Big Success

The GCDA led off a new year of professional development activities with a Fall Kickoff at Mary Mac's Tea Room in midtown Atlanta.

Dr. Michelle Tullier, Executive Director of the Center for Career Discovery and Development at the Georgia Institute of Technology, spoke to a full room of career development practitioners about the Inward-Outward Model of Career Development. 

In addition to discussing the model, participants enjoyed a hot, hearty breakfast provided by the wonderful staff at Macy Mac's!

Thank you to all who were able to attend -- we hope you found the event to be thought provoking for you and helpful to you in your career development practice.
