Complimentary webinar with Mikaela Kiner

Finding Your Own Version of Resiliency and How to Achieve It

Join the Discussion with Mikaela Kiner

With the threat and impact of COVID-19 on the world, now more than ever people are being expected to show up with resiliency and endurance. However, the standard concept of resiliency is not as inclusive as we might think.

When so many factors play into how individuals combat crises, there’s a stronger need to redefine what resiliency looks like. How each of us shows up is influenced by our upbringing, economic status, culture, and experiences. The more you know about what resiliency looks like, the more empathy you’ll have for yourself and those around you.

Join us on June 11 at 1 PM (ET) for a free webinar with Mikaela Kiner, author of Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace, along with Ruchika Tulshyan, Emily Parkhurst, and Cheryl Ingram, PhD. During this time together, our guests will discuss how you can find your own version of resiliency and help you figure out how to achieve it.
