Shape Your Cape Summit

Shape Your Cape Summit Logo Final Blue Background

The Shape Your Cape Summit is BACK for its fifth year - and we are taking it virtual! That's right - with the unknowns around our world's current events, we've decided to bring the Summit back in 2021 virtually so that we can continue to shape Cape Cod into a vibrant place to live and work for young professionals, year-round. This year, we're excited to continue facilitating forward-thinking conversation, interactive learning opportunities, and community connections at the ONLY conference created for - and by - the Cape's young workforce community.

Topics at this year's event will focus on resilience and will be built around the COVID-19 survey CCYP developed in 2020 to capture the needs of professionals during these trying times. The event is designed to further regional understanding and action around a variety of issues that impact the quality of life and career opportunities for young people living and working on Cape Cod.

The keynote speaker presented by Eastern Bank, will be Julie Brown, a sought after speaker, networking expert, business strategist, Author of This Shit Works: A No-Nonsense Guide to Networking Your Way to More Friends, More Adventures, and More Success, a book dedicated to making networking easy, accessible (and even fun!) as well as the host of the This Shit Works podcast. If you cringe at the thought of attending a networking event (virtual or otherwise), if you’ve recently been laid off, or if you’re just looking to expand your professional network, and advance your career, Julie’s advice and tips strike the perfect balance of humor and expertise gained from more than 20 years of networking experience within the Architecture industry. Julie shows you everyone at any stage of their career that you can unapologetically be who you are authentically and still be WILDLY successful. Check out her podcast - especially her take on 5 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Virtual Conferences.

The 2021 Summit is presented with generous support from our sponsor, Cape Cod Healthcare. Thank you for making this event possible!

What is the Shape Your Cape Summit?

The Shape Your Cape Summit is Cape Cod's ONLY conference created for - and by - the Cape's young workforce community! Each year, the Shape Your Cape Summit provides a venue for leaders and up-and-comers across a variety of sectors to participate in forward-thinking conversation, interactive learning, and community networking. The event was first hosted in 2016, following the completion of CCYP's landmark Shape the Cape Study, which found a need for career development and community-building opportunities specifically for Cape Cod's young workers.

Conference topics at the Shape Your Cape Summit range from career development tools and tips, to civic engagement education, to work/life balance and everything in between. The goals of the event are two-fold:

1. To provide the Cape's young workforce community with educational and networking opportunities to thrive, personally and professionally, on Cape Cod;

2. To convene local employers, community leaders, and concerned citizens who are passionate about advancing local understanding and action around issues that impact opportunity for young working-age adults on Cape Cod.
