According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the US employment population ratio, for individuals 16 and older, is 60%. Acquiring a job is part of the life’s journey. As humans, we grow up answering the question of, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” in order to become a part of the 60%. Whether at the age of 10, we knew what we wanted to be or not, we often based our enthusiastic response on what we saw around us. Years later, reality kicks in, and we have to make a decision on a career. Unfortunately, 70 – 80% of the employed 60% are unhappy with their job. Why? Is it money earned, your boss, co-workers, type of work? The answers could be endless.
How can we bring back that enthusiasm we had as a bright-eyed 10 year-old? What if we looked at our jobs or careers differently? Maybe instead of being just a job, we view it as a lifestyle choice, full of opportunities and endless possibilities? Dr. Maya Warren will share her experiences and insights on making the most of her lifestyle choice and how to inspire others to do the same. She will provide firsthand insight on how to gain opportunities in your lifestyle by simply looking through a different lens and take you on a journey that will challenge you to think big and ACT BIGGER.
Dr. Warren chose a career in science. But she is not your typical researcher. Her specialty lies in the microstructure, sensorial, and behavioral properties of frozen aerated desserts. She has one of the coolest and sweetest lifestyles as an ice cream scientist. But she views her education in science as more than just knowledge itself, as there is more to her nametag than just “scientist.” She is an advocate for science education for youth and loves sharing her passion for ice cream with the world. Dr. Warren is also the winner of the 25th season of the CBS reality television show, The Amazing Race and is currently the TastemasterTM and lead scientist for Cold Stone Creamery.
