Join us for a lively and interactive discussion about building resiliency in both your personal and professional lives! This event will also serve as the kick-off for the 2020 Mentoring Circles program!

What is “resiliency” or “grit?”  It is the powerful combination of determination and direction that shows up in so many ways as we move through life and develop personally and professionally. It drives us and shapes us as friends, colleagues, and parents.  In this discussion, Dr. Sherri Stephan, a scientist and senior executive in the US government, will share her experience in using resiliency to learn and grow through setbacks and to focus on what really matters.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided.

This event is free for members of the AWIS DC chapter and for those participating in the 2020 Mentoring Circles program. The cost for non-AWIS members and non-Mentoring Circles members is $10.
