CEW & TIAA-CREF Partner Offers Career Development and Financial Education Workshops at U-M in 2015

For decades, CEW has made innovative, accessible and effective employee development a hallmark of its programs and services. CEW will partner with TIAA-CREF in 2015 to provide programming designed to support the professional development and financial education of staff and faculty at the University of Michigan.

1. WCTF Career Conference: For the 4th consecutive year, TIAA-CREF served as the Platinum Plus corporate sponsor for the 2015 WCTF Career Conference which took place on Friday, March 6th. Representatives from the Ann Arbor office were present to conduct two financial education workshops (Charting Your Course: A Financial Guide for Women, and Halfway There: A Retirement Check-Up) and sign up participants for individual appointments.
