Target Corporations and the School of Business Career Development Office will host the inspiring national speaker, Jess Ekstrom. Jess is the founder and CEO of Headbands of Hope, which she founded after an internship with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Headbands of Hope created fun fashionable headbands - and for every headband purchased, one is given to a child with cancer. Jess will speak about how to use Millennial traits to inspire change, how college can help launch ideas, and how to flip millennial stereotypes into traits of leaders!

Jess has been featured on the Today Show, NBC News, ABC's Good Morning America, The Huffington Post, and Forbes. She was recently voted as Women's Health Magazine's 2017 Ultimate Game Changer Winner. Don't miss this opportunity to hear this dynamic speaker!
