2022 Event Details



In the past two years of navigating the pandemic, racial injustices, and so much more, we’ve all been encouraged to be resilient.  What happens when that means giving up too much of ourselves?  What if there was something beyond resilience? Our panel will explore strategies to help us build the life we really want to live, drawing from the wisdom of leaders who are working to reimagine resilience and success.
