Bonike Akinsanya recently facilitated a workshop in St. Louis to incoming and returning interns during INROADS New Intern Orientation & Development Training.

INROADS is a nonprofit provider of leadership development and internships. They recruit talented students from ethnically and culturally diverse backgrounds and prepare them to excel in corporate careers and community involvement.

The workshop, titled “Be Your Own Brand,” helped provide attendees with an understanding of the elements that create our personal brands. Students evaluated their own brands, looking closely at how well they were doing compared to other personal brands, identifying opportunities for growth. The session ended with a discussion of ways to work consistently with their personal and professional brands on social media.
