NYU SPS Wasserman Center Shares Career Wellness Model with Clara Lionel Foundation

By Edwin Raagas, Associate Director, NYU SPS Wasserman Center for Career Development

To ensure students and alumni are prepared to manage lifelong professional success, NYU SPS Wasserman Center career coaches partner with students and alumni on activating a career wellness mindset to successfully manage the changing world of work, while being true to their sets of values and life’s purpose. With this in mind, the NYU SPS Wasserman Center was honored to take part in the Clara Lionel Foundation Scholars Summit.

The Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), founded by Rihanna in 2012, supports and funds groundbreaking and effective education and emergency response programs around the world. The CLF Global Scholarship Program supports young people who come to the US to pursue higher education. CLF selected a cohort of 17 dynamic and talented scholars who are attending colleges and universities across the US to attend a Scholars Summit in New York City, which included a career development session facilitated by Edwin Raagas, Associate Director at the NYU SPS Wasserman Center.



During the session, the scholars were introduced to the NYU SPS Wasserman Center’s Career Wellness Model and reflected on their values and professional identity. Many of the participants shared common values aligned with helping others and making an impact. The session was meant to give this group of young changemakers further awareness of themselves, and an understanding of what gives them fulfillment as they begin to explore career paths, whether in social entrepreneurship, the arts, or other fields.
