Bellevue University’s JoDee Goracke Selected to Join Greater Omaha Chamber Young Professionals Council
Bellevue University’s JoDee Goracke has been selected to join the Greater Omaha Chamber Young Professionals Council.
Goracke is currently a program director and assistant professor for the Industrial and Organizational Psychology program at Bellevue University.
The Greater Omaha Chamber Young Professionals Council is led by a select panel of young professionals and works to attract, retain and engage young professionals and is dedicated to elevating the Greater Omaha community. The council serves as a catalyst to develop young professionals through engagement, opportunity and advocacy. By creating programs and initiatives for young professionals by young professionals, the council encourages investment in the people that will power Omaha’s future prosperity.
Council members serve three-year terms. They meet monthly and represent diverse young professionals from various Omaha area organizations. For the past 10 years, council members have helped lead the YP Summit, one of the Chamber’s flagship events, and have been responsible for other young professionals programming and community projects.
“I am honored to have been selected to join the Greater Omaha Chamber Young Professionals Council,” Goracke said. “Our group’s theme is 'get comfortable with being uncomfortable,' which is why I wanted to join this group of professionals because growth can be new and uncomfortable.”
Goracke added that she’s looking forward to attending this year’s YP Summit, which will be held at the CHI Health Center on March 31.
“I want to embrace some new, uncomfortable, and positive growth,” Goracke said. “As the largest young professional’s conference in Nebraska, it always provides great learning, discussions, and connections.”
Goracke has been with Bellevue University for over six years. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Kansas and a Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
