Love What You Do
A GHWCC Job Shadowing / Mentor Program for Female High School / College Students
APPLICATION PROCESS BEGINS IN OCTOBER 2021
The Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce is passionate about educating young women and exposing them to professional growth opportunities. As such, the Chamber’s Education Committee offers college junior & senior girls an opportunity to shadow professionals in their chosen field in a program called “Love What You Do.”
During this exciting day female students shadow a professional in a career related to their field of study and network with women who have expertise, advice and unique insights to share. This is an opportunity for students to learn from leaders in business and experience a day in the real life of a working woman.

The lunch portion of the program gives students an opportunity to practice their public speaking skills by sharing with the group about their experience. This is also an opportunity to teach dining etiquette and networking skills. We end the day by presenting participants with certificates.
Join us for a day-long event designed to empower young women in identifying fulfilling careers by opening doors to discover exciting career options, build lasting relationships and explore new opportunities.
