In this webinar, Kathryn J. Volzer (AB '09, MBA '14) will introduce our alumni community to a new software platform the University will be launching soon. In March 2016, Kate founded Wisr (pronounced "Wiser"), a startup in the higher ed tech sector, and currently serves as CEO.

Wisr is an engagement platform that makes it easy for alumni to connect with and guide current students toward a fulfilling career path through automated matching, scheduling, and follow-up communications. Wisr lets students request 15—30 minute conversations with alumni to learn about different career paths, industries, skills they need to succeed, and even what classes they should take. By sharing just a little bit of their time, alumni can help students get on the right track, early in their college career.

Wisr will also support alumni-to-alumni connections and networking.
