Friday Fellows Skillshare: Get Clear and Accelerate Your Career

Fellowship Event


United States

For June's skillshare we will be hearing from Mia Scharpie. Please note that this skillshare is for women & femme-identifying people only.

We need growth, challenge and a path to move forward in our careers and feel creative, impactful and satisfied. In this session you’ll learn about some of the common reasons women's career growth and can slow down and what you can do to speed it up again. You’ll learn specific strategies—from real women—that you can implement in your day-to-day to help you get your career back to being dynamic and forward-moving.


Mia Scharphie is a creative agent of change, a do-er, and big-picture thinker. She founded Build Yourself to help women in creative fields move past the obstacles that hold them back in their careers and to make those workplaces better places for women’s talent.
Mia is a trained facilitator and has worked on women’s advocacy for over fifteen years. She’s run a research effort on women in social impact design for the Harvard Business School, is a founding member of the Equity Roundtable at the Boston of Architects, and was named as one of Impact Design Hub’s Social Impact Design 40 under 40. She has spoken extensively across the country including at the Association of Community Designers, and A Better World by Design, as well as the University of Pennsylvania and UT Austin. Mia received degrees from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Brown University. Her writings on issues of equity in design have been published in the Christian Science Monitor and GOOD.
