Resiliency and Self Care

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm



In this workshop we will explore different techniques of building resilience, both personally and professionally. Resilience can cause a ripple effect that not only impacts us, but others around us, which increases all of our opportunities to thrive both individually and collectively.
