Coffee Chats is a series of virtual casual gatherings with the CEAD team with industry guests. Hosted virtually in small intimate groups, these gatherings will provide a space for group conversations with practitioners who are interested in supporting OCAD U students and grads to offer mentorship, and share their professional insights and journey, while collectively creating an online community.

Seowon is open to talking about:
Impostor syndrome (does it ever go away?), switching career paths, the challenges and joys of being a generalist/wearer of many hats, finding your niche, the importance of having a great mentor and stepping up for leadership roles yourself, living and working with mental health issues and how to set yourself for success (or at least minimize crash-and-burn), personal development and spiritual practices to ground yourself
