A woman must meet three criteria to be eligible for this consideration:
- Be a graduate in any year (since 1980!) of at least one core program of NDCC.
- Believe that the experiences provided by the Center significantly influenced her to use her potential and advance toward fulfilling work that contributes to increased financial security.
- Be willing to share her story of life change with the public through presentations and publications sponsored by New Directions Career Center, offered as a valuable resource.
